PERFORMANCE: Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust had 2,187 patients waiting longer than 18 weeks for treatment at the end of March - more than it had planned if it is to meet government standards of 92 per cent of outstanding patients waiting less than 18 weeks.

It has a target of no more than 1004 patients waiting at the end of March.

The trust board heard that extra inhouse capacity was being identified and patients were also being offered choice.
