                          AIREDALE PRIMARY CARE TRUST

             PERFORMANCE MONITORING REPORT – JULY 2002



1.   Introduction

     Board members will be aware from previous reports that there are a number of indicators by
     which the Primary Care Trust is measured for the purposes of performance management. This
     report and the enclosed attachments are intended to inform the Board of the position against
     these indicators given the available information for the quarter ending June 2002.


2.   Activity Profiles

     The first page of the attachments shows the activity profiles for the PCT broken down by
     Provider. Members should be aware of the context in which these profiles have been developed
     as outlined in the notes at the bottom of the spreadsheet.


3.   Cancer Waiting Times

     The second page of the attachments relates to the Cancer waiting times at Airedale NHS Trust.
     As in previous years these are reported on a Trust wide basis and therefore include figures for
     commissioners other than Airedale PCT. The acute Trust continues to perform very well in this
     particular area, maintaining its performance from previous months.


4.   Out Patient Waiting Times

     Included next is a table that shows the number of patients waiting over 13 and over 21 weeks by
     Provider. Theses are Airedale PCT specific figures. The PCT in conjunction with the Acute
     Trust is in the process of bidding for extra funding from the Department of Health that if
     successful will allow the eradication of over 13- week waits in all specialties by March 2003. The
     challenge still remains to manage the waits at Providers other than Airedale Acute Trust


5.   In Patient and Out Patient Monthly Profiles

     This attachment brings together the information for both in-patient and out patient activity and
     length of waits compared to the profiles. Also included is revascularisation activity and waits. At
     this early stage in the year the schemes that are being developed to ensure that the targets are
     attained have not been fully implemented and therefore the effects are not yet showing.


6.   Traffic Lights

     Board members will be familiar with the Traffic light reporting mechanism, the pattern that is
     shown here is classically that of previous reports. The rate of emergency admissions continues
     to be greater than expected while the list size is also not diminishing at the expected rate, note 5
     above indicates the PCT’s view on this.
