Public Accounts Committee queries NHS waiting time data

April 29, 2014 8:10 am

The Public Accounts Committee has warned that inaccuracies in data on waiting times might result in patients’ trust in the NHS being “inevitably undermined”. MPs have called for independent reviews of hospital trusts’ statistics as many institutions deal with a “hotchpotch” of data collection methods. Chair of the Public Accounts Committee, Margaret Hodge, said “public confidence in the success hospital trusts have had in meeting the 18 week waiting time target is inevitably undermined by errors in trusts’ recording of waiting time information.”
