PERFORMANCE: Performance has been improving in the parts of North Yorkshire where the Tees, Esk and Wear Valley Foundation Trust has taken on.

In December 63 per cent of patients were seen within four weeks for a first appointment, a significant improvement on the year to date performance of 52 per cent.  However, delayed transfers of care are still between 16 and 17 per cent against a target of 7.5 per cent.
