PERFORMANCE: Royal Berkshire Hospital Foundation Trust was responsible for six accident and emergency “trolley waits” of more than 12 hours in a single week.

The total accounts for all the “trolley waits” - patients waiting more than 12 hours from the decision to admit to admission - recorded in England in the week ending September 22.

Latest figures released by NHS England show that the Royal Berkshire was also performing significantly below the four hour waiting times standard for the week.

In total 88.2 per cent of “type one” A&E patients waited four hours or less for admission or discharge, against a national target of 95 per cent.

The trust’s total for all A&E patients was 89.6 per cent.
