Bradford Teaching Foundation Trust missed the 18 weeks referral to treatment target for admitted patients by a signficant distance in August.

It is the most recent information reported to the board of the NHS North of England board.

The organisation’s performance board paper says: “At Bradford Teaching NHS FT, there are issues in the specialties of General Surgery, Ophthalmology and Ear, Nose and Throat. The Trust has invited the Department of Health’s Intensive Support Team to the organisation to review its action plan. Weekly calls with the SHA and commissioners are in place to monitor progress.”

The paper says: “NHS Yorkshire and Humber continues to deliver the 90% and 95% aggregate positions. Plans are in place for recovery for the individual hospitals.”
