PERFORMANCE: The south London/Surrey borders trust had a 2011-12 target of only 20 grade three pressure ulcers for the year, a target it risks missing as two incidents this month took the year-to-date total to 20.

The £329m-turnover trust’s target was to halve the number of pressure ulcers recorded last year, 41.

A report to the trust’s January board meeting said both the most recent cases had happened at Epsom Hospital “which has previously had a low incidence”.
