PERFORMANCE: Barnsley Hospital Foundation Trust will only achieve the 95 per cent target for treating patients within four hours at A&E if it can achieve 98 per cent in the last two months of the year, the trust board heard.

The trust has missed the target for the third quarter of the year and again in January, giving it a year-to-date performance of 94.65 per cent. It could achieve the quarter four target if it treated 96 per cent of patients within four hours.
