“COVID had a hugely disruptive impact on health and care services and our staff have worked tirelessly over the last two years to recover and remobilise from the pandemic.
“At the event yesterday, we set out the real progress that we have made in tackling the longest waits, whilst also continuing to treat those patients in need of emergency, urgent, cancer and trauma care.
“We have also continued to modernise and introduce new ways of working that deliver better outcomes and are more convenient for our patients.
“COVID remains with us, of course, so the delivery the mass vaccination programmes was a major achievement.
“We know that we are still on the road to recovery and we remain fully focused on continuing to deliver for our patients and communities.”
On the ongoing investigations into the QEUH and RHC, the Chair added: “Our thoughts remain with the patients, families and staff who have been affected by events at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and Royal Hospital for Children.
“We will continue to contribute to the ongoing police investigation and Lord Brodie’s Public Inquiry as we have done so throughout.”
