Performance and staffing

How we are doing

Below are figures that show you how we, South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, are performing in areas that impact on patient experience. They can be used for like-for-like comparisons across all NHS hospitals in England.

You can also view our Care Quality Commission inspection reports.

We monitor our nursing staff levels on a daily basis to ensure they are as safe as possible. This information is reported to the Board of Directors on a monthly basis and the daily and monthly figures can be seen below:

  • January 2017 - Daily staffing figures

  • Performance figures

    18 Weeks referral to treatment target - patients waiting for treatment = 94%

    April 2015 - March 2016

    Hospitals in England are expected to treat patients within 18 weeks from the date they receive a referral for treatment. The figure shown represents the Trust’s performance against the national target, i.e. the percentage of patients waiting less than 18 weeks from the point of referral for treatment.

    A&E 4 hour wait time = 96.1%

    April 2015 - March 2016

    This is the percentage of patients who have received emergency treatment and who have been admitted or discharged from the department within 4 hours of arrival in A&E


    Cancer treatment: 2 week referral = 94.5%

    April 2015 - March 2016

    All patients referred to us urgently where their GP suspects there may be a risk of cancer should be seen in outpatients within 14 days of the receipt of the referral. The figure shown represents the percentage of patients seen within this time-frame.

    Cancer treatment: 62 day waits = 84.2%

    April 2015 - March 2016

    All patients diagnosed with cancer should start their treatment (which may include chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery) within 62 days from first being referred to South Warwickshire Hospitals. The figure shown represents the percentage of patients seen within this time-frame.

    Number of clostridium difficile cases = 2

    April 2015 - March 2016

    Like all other healthcare organisations, one of our key priorities is to prevent patients from getting an infection whilst they are in our care.

    Number of MRSA cases = 1

    April 2015 - March 2016

    Like all other healthcare organisations, one of our key priorities is to prevent patients from getting an infection whilst they are in our care.

    Occurrence of pressure ulcers (bed sores) = 4

    April 2015 - March 2016

    We are committed to improving patient safety by reducing hospital acquired pressure ulcers. The level of severity (where 1=least severe and 4=most severe) of the categories increases with the number. All pressure ulcers can cause pain and distress for patients and the more serious ones can cause major disability or even death, which makes this priority extremely important.

    The Friends and Family Test - A&E = 96%

    In March 2016 of the patients using our A&E service who completed a survey, 96% would recommend the department as a place to be treated to friends and family. (National average = 85%)

    The Friends and Family Test has been developed by the Department of Health for use across all hospitals in England and provides patients with the opportunity to provide direct feedback on the care and treatment they receive. Patients when leaving are asked "how likely are you to recommend our A&E department to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?" and are given 6 options to choose from, ranging from 'extremely likely' to 'extremely unlikely' and 'Don't know'.
