Hospital to Try Harder To Meet Cancer Targets

Hospital to Try Harder To Meet Cancer Targets

It has been recently revealed in a report that the target set a hospital in the south Tees, hasn't been achieved. This was a cancer target and was meant for rendering the appropriate care for the patients suffering from the disease. The hospital hasn't even fared well in the ratings that disclose how well the place has worked and how much effort they have put in for the same.

They haven't been able to meet their target which means that they have left about 16% of the cancer patients waiting for the preliminary treatment too long. This is definitely a failure on their part but they are trying to make the required amendments in the time to come, and work for the benefit of the patients suffering from the killer disease.

"February was a very busy month with the usual winter pressures and I briefed colleagues last month predicting we would struggle with the 62-day target for cancer, which has come to fruition", said Susan Watson, Director of operational services.

There is need for more efforts to be made by the hospital so that they meet the diverse needs of the cancer patients and are able to give them the best treatment and that too without having to wait too long for it.
