PERFORMANCE: Cumbria Partnership Foundation Trust failed to meet the 18 week referral to treatment target for several clinical areas in April – including diabetics, community paediatrics, neuroscience and restorative dentistry.

A report to May’s board said that the trust put a high priority on seeing patients will within the target and work was underway to recover performance and to ensure that all patients were seen within a reasonable time.

It hopes to have met the target by the end of the first quarter.
