Wythenshawe Hospital will allow them to see how each doctor is ranked against national standards.
The University Hospital of South Manchester Trust will begin with its cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons with details of how they did and what their patients said before extending to all its 250 consultants across all specialties by the end of the year.

UHSM joined forces with researchers Picker Institute Europe to devise the system.
