SOME waiting time targets for cancer and emergency patients are not being met by the Isle of Wight NHS Trust.
The trust failed to meet two key national targets during the past four quarters — to treat 95 per cent of accident and emergency patients within four hours, and to see 93 per cent of cancer patients within two weeks of an initial referral.
However, other cancer waiting time targets have been met.
According to figures published by the Department of Health, the trust is in the top quartile of trusts nationally for meeting five key targets, including ambulance response and cancer treatment times. It is better than the national average for eight targets, including treating patients within 18 weeks and stroke care.
But it is worse then the national average for two targets — treating emergency patients within four hours and treating cancer patients within 31 days following diagnosis — and in the bottom quartile for four, which include cancer targets.
The government figures were compiled from performance data from various time periods and can be viewed below.
