STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

Strength in Numbers dedicated to my late mother Kay

13,000 died needlessly at 14 worst NHS trusts, full report out this week

Full report out this week

• Name 14 hospitals as having excess rates of death, with hundreds of patients dying needlessly at each of them since 2005;
• Severely criticise the worst hospital, Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which had 1,600 more deaths than would have been expected in seven years – a higher death toll than that at Stafford;
• Show that the warning signs were there for managers and ministers to see, including alarming levels of infections, patients suffering from neglect and appalling blunders such as surgery performed on the wrong parts of bodies

Just shocking how this country has allowed this to happen and its still going on
