PERFORMANCE Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals Foundation Trust is not hitting a key stroke performance target, according to local commissioners.

Papers submitted to NHS Norfolk’s January meeting said the percentage treated within 24 hours has dipped below the 60% target. 

The paper, by South Norfolk Commissioning Group, said: “Eleven out of 24 patients were not seen within the 24 hours best practice requirement. 

“Pressure will remain on the trust during the remainder of 12/13 to improve performance, and they will be required to meet these targets for 13/14.”

The paper was submitted to NHS Norfolk’s 23 January board meeting.
