Patient Safety Data on NHS Choices

image 38

On NHS Choices you can already compare hospitals according to waiting times, facilities, specialist treatments, or consultants. Now you can also see how hospitals perform on patient safety. Find out how hospitals recognise and report problems with safety, how well they are fulfilling their nurse staffing requirements or if the staff would recommend the hospital to their own family or friends. The information on patient safety will help you to make an informed choice about where to have treatment.

You can search for hospitals in England by postcode or location, and find out how they are performing. Hospitals are ranked by how they are doing in terms of infection control and cleanliness but also their CQC rating, safe staffing levels, or patient safety reporting.
