Wales' local health boards have published mortality figures for their hospitals today.
The Welsh Government is committed to transparency on performance and to improving access to NHS information. As from today, anyone in Wales can view a measure of hospital mortality.
The data published today add to a range of information available to help us assess the quality of our care.
However, while it provides useful information, it should not be viewed in isolation as a measure of the quality of hospital care. We must use this information to drive up the quality of our care.
