Key performance indicators
Our performance against national targets set by the Care Quality Commission has remained strong throughout the year. We have sustained low waiting times for all our patients and ensured that over 96% of our patients have been able to access treatment in less than 18 weeks from referral by their GP. All patients referred to us with suspected cancer follow agreed clinical pathways and access appropriate treatment quickly.
Our infection prevention and control processes are robust and we have only had one baby on our Neonatal unit with MRSA (2 bouts) and one gynaecology patient with clostridium difficile during the year. We have been able to declare compliance with all the Standards for Better Health.
