PERFORMANCE: Sefton PCT did not achieve a target to ensure 90 per of cancer patients were treated within 62 days after screening, says a report to the Merseyside PCT cluster.

The trust’s cumulative figure for April was 87.5 per cent due to two breaches, says the peformance report.

“One breach was due to patient choice and one breach was as a result of a referral delay between trusts,” says the report.
