PERFORMANCE: Performance board papers for Swindon CCG highlight its concern over the four hour A&E waiting time target at Great Western Hospitals NHS Trust.

The trust only managed to achieve a total of 90.4 per cent of patients waiting less than four hours in compared to a target of 95 per cent. One paper states that the “acute hospital performance since Decemberhas been below the 95% target.”

They add: “The current trajectory is to achieve this target by end May 2013. A whole health and social care response has been put in place.”
