PERFORMANCE: The east London hospital has seen the proportion of people who leave without being seen remain steady at 10 per cent since April, double the target.

The new performance measure was introduced in April and Newham recorded rates of 10.1 per cent, 9.1 per cent, 9.8 per cent and 10.4 per cent in the subsequent months.

Unplanned A&E re-attendances were within target though, with rates around 2.7 per cent compared to a 5 per cent threshold.
