PERFORMANCE: Seven patients admitted as emergencies to North Bristol Trust have waited more than 12 hours since the beginning of the financial year, more than any other trust in the south west.

Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Foundation Trust has had three breaches of the old “trolley wait” target, Taunton and Somerset FT and Royal United Hospital Bath have had two each while Great Western Hospitals FT has had one. No other trusts in the region have reported patients waiting more than 12 hours for a bed.
