The 13 NHS trusts with highest death rates – so is your hospital on the list?


THESE are the 13 NHS Trusts with the highest death rates across England.

Estimates suggest around 3,700 more patients that officials expected died after spending time at the hospitals.

The trusts were named in a new NHS Digital report on hospital mortality rates from data collected between January and December last year.

Health bosses warned the figures were a “smoke alarm” and only warranted further investigation to determine the cause of the deaths.

But eight of the worst 13 recorded higher than expected deaths the year before and three have been flagged since 2014, according to the Mail.

NHS Digital collected data from 134 trusts during 2017.

There were around nine million discharges, from which some 294,000 patients died either during a hospital visit or shortly after being sent home.

About 9.7 per cent of NHS trusts reported higher than expected death rates.

But some 103 reported no excess deaths and 18 reported lower than expected fatality rates.

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust and Wye Valley NHS Trust have all had excess deaths since January 2013.

A similar form of statistical analysis helped uncover the Mid Staffs hospital scandal in 2010 that saw frail and elderly patients left without food or water.

Sir Robert Francis, QC, published his final report into the scandal in 2013 and found bosses became obsessed with cost-cutting and government targets at the expense of care.

His three volume report following the 2010 public inquiry found hundreds of patients experienced “appalling and unnecessary” suffering.

It remains one of the biggest scandals in the history of the UK.
