    RCS position on performance standards for access to planned treatment, A&E and cancer care

    A number of trust chief executives have spoken out in the press today about NHS England's current review of current performance standards for access to planned treatment, A&E and cancer care. The Royal College of Surgeons has said it does not support the abolition of performance standards covering access to planned treatment, A&E, and cancer care. However, it says NHS England’s review is a good opportunity to examine existing standards and determine the right targets to ensure patients can get the care they require when it is of most benefit.
