NHS Trust must improve

    Tunbridge Wells Hospital at Pembury

    Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, that runs Pembury hospital, was among 30 to meet regulators last week to discuss how to hit A&E targets by ‘sharing innovation’ and ‘good practice’.

    The trust, the best performing in Kent, is hitting the target that A&E patients are treated within four hours, 87.7% of the time. It should be 95 %.

    Only 13 out of 130 trusts nationwide recently succeeded in hitting the 95 %.
