Yeovil Hospital among best in England for A and E waiting times

Waiting times at Yeovil Hospital’s A&E were the third best in the country last year, and were the best in the south of England. Every NHS emergency department (A&E) is monitored on its waiting times, with a target of seeing 95% of patients within four-hours of their arrival. At Yeovil, 97.37 per cent of patients were seen within the four-hour target, making it the third best performing hospital out of 132 in England and one of just eight in England to achieve the target for the year. The Trust saw 55,880 emergency patients last year, treating patients with everything from heart-attacks and serious road accident injuries, to broken limbs and migraines.
