NHS Trust fails to hit guideline targets

Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is failing to meet national guidelines in three areas; namely its accident and emergency department, for cancer treatment, and for planned operations and care, such as knee and hip replacements. According to publically-available statistics, the Trust is ranked 93rd out of 134 trusts so far as its A&E department is concerned, with 86.5 per cent of patients treated or admittedĀ  in four hours, against a Government-set target of 95 per cent.

In terms of cancer care, the trust was ranked 113th out of 135 trusts, with 76.6 per cent of patients beginning treatment with 62 days of urgent GP referral. The target is 85 per cent. And finally, the trust was ranked 104th out of 131 for planned ops and care, with 85.9 per cent waiting less than 18 weeks, when the target is 92 per cent.

Beverley FM approached Hull and East Yorkshire NHGS Trust for a comment but did not receive a reply.
