Waiting time figures investigated15th October 2009
The Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham has launched an investigation after patients' records were altered to suggest NHS waiting time targets were met.
A review found 765 records were amended between March and September to claim patients were treated within four hours. The hospital, which has apologised, previously said it met government targets of treating 98% of patients within four hours. But the review shows in reality that the actual figure was 97.4% rather than the published figure of 98.3%, which was based on the altered records.
