The trust that runs the two hospitals serving Barking and Dagenham missed a government target for seeing A&E patients within four hours by 10 per cent, it has emerged.
Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospital Trust (BHRUT), which runs Queen’s Hospital in Romford and King George Hospital in Goodmayes, admitted or discharged 85 per cent of patients within four hours during the month of May.
The figure shows there has been no improvement on last year, when in one week in June, 86.4 per cent of A&E patients were seen within the time frame.
Recently it emerged the doomed emergency department at King George Hospital could remain open beyond 2015.
A provisional date for closure had been set for next year, with the condition that it was clinically safe to do so.
