PERFORMANCE: West Suffolk Foundation Trust struggled to meet stroke targets in March with performance on some key indicators deteriorating.

Only 71 per cent of patients were admitted to an acute stroke unit within four hours, compared with 82 per cent for the year to date and a 90 per cent target.

And only 57 per cent of patients were scanned within one hour against a target of 100 per cent and in year performance of 82 per cent.
