The latest Dr Foster Hospital Guide was released today, and for the fifth year running was edited and authored by ZPB’s very own Alex Kafetz. In fact the ZPB team have been involved with ten editions of the Guide now, all of which can be viewed and downloaded from here.
Coverage so far today has reached the front page of the Guardian, the Telegraph, BBC, and national and local papers across the country. Alex made an appearance on BBC Breakfast this morning, and Roger Taylor, Co-Founder and Director of Research at Dr Foster has been interviewed on SKY, ITN, BBC London and the Today programme (listen to Roger speaking here). The data is also being featured on tonight’s Panorama programme at 8:30pm, entitled “How Safe is your Hospital?”.
