The Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals Trust

Royal Wolverhampton's stretch targets queried by Monitor

PERFORMANCE: Monitor has queried whether the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals Trust’s stretch targets were realistic, after it decided to retain the goal to treat 95 per cent of A&E patients within four hours.

The trust had kept the 98 per cent performance target, despite the fact that the national target is now 95 per cent . The target had been put in place as part of the annual planning process to ensure patient flow through the system was maintained.

A 10 per cent reduction had been agreed in length of stay and, although this target has shown as “red” all year, the performance tables did show a downward trend.

Although no longer required, the trust had kept the response times to complaints and had applied a local target for Clostridium difficile.
