Full Story in East London and West Essex Guardian 13 February 2018

THE PRINCESS Alexandra Hospital has been recognised as the best in the country a month after recording the worst A&E waiting times in England.

More than a third of patients waited for more than four hours at the Harlow hospital this January, with 2,830 of the 8,422 patients kept waiting for 240 minutees or more from arrival to admission, discharge or transfer.

As well as missing its target of seeing 95 per cent of patients in four hours or less by 30 per cent, one patients was left waiting for more than half a day.

January’s unfortunate figures come after the Princess Alexandra was rated the worst in England for A&E waiting times from October to December, and also won a prestigious award.
