Waiting Times Low At Dorset County Hospital

Dorset County Hospital 1

9:22am 24th January 2014

Dorset County Hospital's told Wessex FM that waiting times for patients there are low.

Yesterday the National Audit Office criticised some NHS Trusts claiming that many patients have their waits incorrectly recorded.

In a statement to Wessex FM Dorset County Hospital says out of all the Trusts that were audited, they had the fewest errors in how waiting times were recorded.

A spokesperson for Dorset County Hospital said:

 "Waiting times for our patients are low.  The National Audit Office was looking at how we measure those waiting times and whether more auditing is required.

 "Of the Trusts that were audited we were shown to have the fewest errors in how waiting times are recorded and we have made our Patient Access Policy publicly available on our website, so patients can be reassured they are receiving a good service from their local hospital:
