A & E
The BBC in a recent programme stated that the Royal Surrey had declared a Major Incident re its A&E. That is incorrect and the BBC has been informed. The Royal Surrey like all hospitals in the country, is under extreme pressure but nevertheless is coping well and meeting the 95% target for maximum 4 hours from arrival to discharge or admission. Whereas the hospital has missed this target on a few occasions it has done so only marginally. Recently its A&E was judged amongst the best in the country - let us hope the winter pressures do not change that position.
