RTT: The Highest Risk Organisations: November 2015

  |   MBI Perform

It’s a huge month for us at MBI Health Group. Today we launch our new tool for GPs, relatives and patients to manage their own waiting times and get access to specialist advice if they need it. is our free to use guide to managing waiting times.


We believe patients and their advocates should take more control of their waits but it is confusing for them. So our new tool aims to remove this confusion and give you access to expertise should you need it.


So head over to now to start managing your waiting times.


In terms of this month’s figures, it has been a mixed month for elective waiting lists. The overall list shrank by over 21,000 patients – good news. But those waiting longer than 26 weeks increased by 3,200 – bad news. However, the really long waiting patients – those over 39 weeks has reduced by 1300 and the over 1 year waiters is getting more concentrated – with two Trusts North Bristol and University Hospitals Leicester accounting for 530 of the total 800 over 1 year waits.


Little change has occurred in terms of the Trusts in most difficulty with Medway NHS Foundation Trust, Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, and Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust remaining the highest risk organisations in England.


As usual our Trust rankings are compiled through statistical analysis of past and current performance to give organisations a risk-adjusted ranking and whether their performance is getting worse or better.


Again, we have looked at organisations in three ways:


  • The Shelford Group: the self-styled “leading group of hospitals” in the NHS;
  • Foundation Trusts: hospitals that have earned the right to more freedom from government policy;
  • Non-Foundation Trusts: all the rest of the hospitals.


Why not have a look and see where your local Trust comes in our league table. You can download the list for free HERE
