The district’s accident and emergency departments are among the best performing in the country after meeting a target to treat patients within four hours.

Mid-Yorkshire Hospitals Trust, which runs Dewsbury, Pontefract and Pinderfields hospitals, has been consistently meeting the target to see and treat 95 per cent of patients within the time limit since March 2012.

Figures released by NHS England show that Mid-Yorkshire, which is the fifth busiest A&E unit in the country treating around 4,500 patients a week, is the best performing of all England’s 58 non-foundation trusts.
