PERFORMANCE: Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust, which is one of the world’s most prestigious teaching organisations and has a turnover of more than £900m, was among four in the capital that missed the 18 week target, new data shows.

A report to NHS London’s board said: “Four trusts are not delivering the 90 per cent admitted standard (Guy’s and St Thomas’, St George’s, South London, Ealing).”

The report did not say what percentage each trust had achieved.
