At the end of June 2019, figures from NHS England showed that we had the third best performance in the country against the national Referral to Treatment (RTT) target for waiting times compared to other acute trusts. The standard is for 92% of elective patients to be treated within 18 weeks of referral by a GP.
A Black Country screening programme which identifies a potentially fatal condition in men is one of the best attended in the country.
The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Russells Hall Hospital and Guest and Corbett Outpatient Centres, became smoke-free on Monday 3rd June 2019.
The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust held its annual awards, Committed to Excellence, at The Copthorne Hotel on Friday 5th July. Springer spaniel Molly and her owner Geoff Ashton picked up the Patient Choice award.
Congratulations to Mike Platt and Dudley Rehab Service who are this month’s Healthcare Hero winners! The award is our way of saying thank you.
