18-week referral backlog for Barts2nd October 2009
Barts and the London NHS Trust is facing a backlog of 23,000 potential breaches of the 18-week referral to treatment time target.
A new care record system has contributed to thousands of patients from Barts and the London NHS Trust potentially breaching the target. The trust says the situation is improving and it has resumed reporting on 18-week waits but says it may "fail for the delivery of 18 weeks in 2009/10". Problems with the Cerner Millennium CRS, combined with poor trust data and procedures, are blamed.
