East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust achieves best ever results
THE East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust has recorded its best ever performance.
A report shows virtually every national clinical, operational and financial standard set for the trust was achieved during 2010/11.
The result is the trust’s best ever performance since it was founded over a decade ago.
At the same time, national survey results carried out by the Care Quality Commission point to improving patient experience and staff satisfaction.
Trust chief executive Nick Carver said: “Patients coming to our hospitals today now have a shorter wait for their treatment than in previous years, are unlikely to have their procedure cancelled at the last minute and will be discharged as planned.
