The Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Dr Foster have conducted a study (between July 2011 and June 2013) and have compiled a list of NHS Trusts with consistently high death rates.
These have been identified as Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust, East Lancs Hospitals NHS Trust, Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Blackpool’s Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation, Trust Wye Valley NHS Trust and Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
This in depth study has taken into consideration the age and types of patients treated and looks at the death rates of people who either die in hospital or within 30 days of being discharged. It is based on the SHMI or Summary Hospital-level Mortality Indicator which reports on mortality at Trust level in the NHS in England. According to the SHMI website it reports ‘ the ratio between the actual number of patients who die following treatment at the trust and the number that would be expected to die on the basis of average England figures, given the characteristics of the patients treated there.’
Some of these hospitals are currently being investigated and appear on more than one list compiled by the CQC which is a cause for concern.
