PERFORMANCE: Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust has missed its A&E target for quarter one of this financial year.

The trust achieved the 95 per cent of patients seen within four hours target in April but failed in May and June, with percentages of 92.4 and 93.6 respectively.

The board papers said the “May performance has been very challenging and that 95 per cent performance is not practically achievable in quarter one”.
