5.4pc of East Cheshire Trust diagnostic waits over six weeks

As reported in the HSJ 10 August, 2012

PERFORMANCE: 5.4 per cent of patients awaiting diagnostic tests from the trust in June had been on its waiting list for more than six weeks, against a national target that fewer than 1 per cent of patients should wait that long.

Latest Department of Health data show there were 2,089 patients on East Cheshire’s diagnostics waiting list at the end of the month, of which 112 had been waiting past the six-week threshold.

The trust had the second-highest proportion of over-six-week waiters among NHS providers in the North West. The highest was for Liverpool Community Health Trust, at 17.9 per cent.
