Quarterly Mortality Report - Report No. 26
Date: 16 October 2019
The latest Mortality Report is now available to download using the link below.
The report provides information on mortality rates, indicators of the quality of care and system/process measures that may affect the quality of care. The report does focus on the data, however, we recognise that this is only one part of understanding the issues that may affect a Trust/Provider's mortality rate. They are an indicator and a prompt to looking at the wider system issues; the issues and themes that are explored in detail in AQuA’s Reducing In-hospital Mortality publication (May 2013).
The report is set out in four sections:
- Section 1 compares the North West with other regions of England
- Section 2 looks at the differences in data for the 21 Trust/Provider's in the North West for which the NHS Digital produces a SHMI
- Section 3 provides more detailed information for the Trust/Provider
- Section 4 focuses on a different topic each quarter; on this occasion it is Acute Myocardial Infarction.
