Manchester University NHS trust have missed targets:

  • Cancer treatment after 62 days from urgent GP referral,  target 85% this trust 81.3%
  • Planned operations within 18 months, target 92% this trust 88.9%
  • Patients starting mental health therapy within 6 weeks of referral, target 75% this trust 73%

These statistics are from October 2018, these stats do not undermine the staff a hospitals who are working as hard as they can, we have seen nurses and doctors working to exhaustion almost in tears!

Looking to see how GP surgeries are doing, Partington’s two surgeries are rated as good, where over 5000 are registered with Dr Deweever’s practice and 3500 with Dr Farhan, the quality commission rates the area as a number 1 which is severely deprived and unknown to many, Partington has a higher rate than the national average of preventable cancers!

Having seen the full report it would seem it would be better to hop to Dr Farhans side.
