Surgery results to be published in open, hospitals told
Now leading doctors will be no longer be under covers as their performance will be disclosed that will state that number of patients that have survived following the procedures they have conducted so far and based on this, they will be authorized to give treatments.
Such figures have already been known to public as heart surgeons have made an attempt to do so and reports state that there was a 50 per cent cut in death rate and in hospital bed stays, £5 million will be saved.
In an attempt to improve the data collection in NHS, £1.2m of new funding is being announced by the Health Secretary and for following the lead of heart surgeons, other specialties are being told to follow.
It is being stated by Lansley that clinical audits can be published when public and private providers are licensed by a new national NHS Commissioning Board.
It has been reported that Lansley will tell the annual meeting of the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery soon that, "You've shown that opening up your data and demonstrating variation in standards isn't an admission of weakness, but a sign of strength. And the result is the steep improvements seen in cardiac care."
