Hospitals face deaths report

Some of our local hospitals are expected to be criticised in a report this week, that was called for in light of the Stafford Hospital scandal.

NHS bosses have been examining 14 hospital trusts with high death rates - including The Dudley Group, George Eliot in Nuneaton Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire, Burton in Staffordshire and United Lincolnshire.

All the trusts have had 'excess' death rates. Sir Bruce Keogh - the report's author - is expected to say that the failings at Stafford Hospital were not a one off.
