Ranked: these are the Yorkshire NHS hospitals where patients wait the longest in A&E

New data for October 2019 has revealed that 9 out of 11 NHS trusts in Yorkshire are failing to meet expected standards on A&E waiting times.

The NHS operational standard for A&E waiting times dictates that 95% of patients should be admitted, transferred or discharged within four hours of arriving. 

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was the worst-performing trust in Yorkshire during October, with just 73.3 per cent of patients seen within the target four-hour window.
