Hillingdon Hospital meeting its key 18-weeks treatment target

First published in Local News by

PATIENTS at Hillingdon Hospital are treated faster than almost anywhere else in the capital.

A national report shows it is the second best performing hospital for meeting its 18-weeks target.

Eighteen weeks covers the period from when a patient first sees a GP to when he/she should expect first treatment in hospital.

At Hillingdon, 96.72 per cent of patients were seen within the target, compared to larger hospital trusts like Barts and St Thomas’ and Guys.

Chief executive Shane DeGaris said: “It’s another step in the right direction for the hospital. Waiting time is one of the commonest complaints facing the NHS.”

Hillingdon puts its success down to closely monitoring and tracking every patient, with a team meeting twice a month to review trends, forecast demands and plan capacity.
