Everyone counts – improving outcomes for patients

NHS England has begun the staged publication of mortality rates for individual hospital consultants in ten specialties, a major breakthrough in NHS transparency.

This leads a push to give patients more information about their treatment, helping the NHS drive up and maintain the quality of care.

The data, covering around 3,500 consultants, can be seen on the NHS Choices website: www.nhs.uk/consultantdata

The data will initially be refreshed annually and publishing of data in this way will be mandatory from next year.
