NHS England’s list of trusts with worst elective and cancer problems

Almost a third of acute trusts have been identified by NHS England as being ‘at risk’ of missing key targets for electives and cancer recovery, with some facing “periodic calls between ministers and CEOs”, HSJ can reveal.

NHS England has identified 39 acute trusts at the most risk of missing the targets of having no patients waiting 78 weeks or more for elective treatment by April 2023, and returning the 62-day cancer waiting list to pre-pandemic levels by March 2023.

HSJ can reveal the full lists of 19 trusts placed in “tier one” – the most at-risk category – and 20 in “tier two” (see lists below). 

The “at risk” trusts represent 31% of the acute providers in England, with many of them among the lowest performers in the country for elective and cancer recovery.
