PERFORMANCE: Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals Trust is hitting waiting time targets for the year-to-date but has backlogs in three specialities.

A report to the trust’s board said: “Action plans are in place to improve performance in three key areas (urology, trauma and orthopaedics and
oral surgery) and progress against trajectory is monitored weekly by the deputy director of operations (planned care and surgery, critical care and anaesthetics) and the general manager for planned care assurance and performance.”
