UK: NHS Consultant Outcome and Performance Data (including Mortality Rates)

An important step forward in NHS transparency and performance evaluation (including mortality rates)

Consultant Outcome Data

"The consultant outcome data published here lets you see the results of consultants’ practice for a range of specialties - medical treatments and surgical procedures.

The data shows how many times a consultant has performed a particular procedure and, in many instances, includes other quality measures such as length of hospital stay, re-admission rate, complication rate, adverse events and mortality rates.

Publication of the data means consultants' performance can be compared openly for a given specialty to help spread best practice and identify any issues that need investigating".
