PERFORMANCE: NHS North of England has highlighted that Barnsley Hospital Foundation Trust is not meeting the A&E waiting time target.

The SHA cluster’s January board papers show that during October and November 94.4 per cent of patients were seen within four hours. The target is 95 per cent.

The SHA cluster paper says it is “working with all economies to ensure the position is not adversely affected by the winter… and targeted action is taking place with those areas who are not achieving 95 per cent”.
