PERFORMANCE: Medway Foundation Trust missed the four hour A&E target in January. But while nearly 93.5 per cent of people were treated, admitted or discharged within four hours one patient had to wait 19 hours and 36 minutes before being admitted.

The patient attended A&E at 9.33pm but, despite seeing a consultant and a surgical referral recommended, it was 5.03pm the next day before they were transferred to a ward.
