Results at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Local MP Meg Munn recently met Tony Pedder, Chair of the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust, to be updated on current issues.

He highlighted the positive work they have done to meet all of the cancer targets for last year ensuring that people referred to the hospital by their GP with suspected cancer are seen promptly. However they have struggled to meet targets of seeing everyone within four hours who attend the accident and emergency service. Infection control has been good with a reduction in number of incidents from the previous year.

While this financial year has seen the hospital balance its books, it will experience significant financial challenges in the year 2014 / 15. The budget will be top sliced to put money into the new Better Care fund that will support greater integration of health and social care. Over the last 9 years the hospital’s budget has been reduced by 30% and making more cuts will be very difficult.

Progress has been made in the development of IT systems with the “choose and book” system being fully operational by the end of the calendar year. Access to electronic records is much better with most patients now having electronic discharge information.

Meg said:

“It is good to hear that Sheffield hospitals are achieving good quality services for patients despite the challenging financial situation. I am very concerned that services will deteriorate over the next year as the Government continues to expect the health service to do more with less money.”
