The trust achieved the target druing 2011-12 with average performance of 96.2 per cent but performance began to detiorate in April and May.

The issue has been recognised as a system-wide problem, exacerbated by the introduction of NHS Pathways at the out-of-hours provider, which has led to an additional 17 patients a day arriving at A&E.
