The Dr Foster 2011 Hospital Guide has been published today. It raises some serious questions about care received by patients at weekends in 147 hospital trusts. The report was written by ZPB’s Alex Kafetz, with Dr Foster, and highlights a 10 per cent spike in deaths compared with weekdays in these trusts.
With 15 press interviews by lunchtime, ZPB’s Alex has supported Dr Foster with its press coverage. This year’s 2011 Dr Foster Hospital Guide looks set to be one of the most important reports this year on hospital care.
