Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust Hospital Tip of NHS Hospitals of Death Iceberg

Politics / NHS Mar 25, 2010 - 10:21 PM GMT

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA lengthy report into the REAL performance of one of Britians top ranked hospitals placed The Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust as a killing field for patients that walk through its doors, this is set against NHS phony statistics on hospitals and GP surgeries that relentlessly paints a picture of everything is great, against the facts of actual patient experience as reported by the Telegraph -


Telegraph - 19th March 2010

Up to 1,200 patients are thought to have died unnecessarily at the trust between 2005 and 2008.

A damning report on the deaths found chronic staff shortages, receptionists in casualty departments assessing the urgency of cases and nurses switching off equipment that did not know how to use.

Both trusts are “Foundation Trusts” a status supposedly awarded to only the best in the NHS.

We were told by the Department of Health that Mid-staffordshire NHS Trust was a one off, an aberration. Now barely a few days later we find that it is barely the tip of the ice-berg with now another 24 Hospitals with the similar problem of engaged in the process of reducing their waiting lists by unnecessarily killing off patients, all according to the NHS produced phony data are doing well as reported by the Daily Mail -

Twenty five hospital trusts should be urgently investigated over fears that thousands of patients may have died unnecessarily, an expert said last night.

Excessive death rates at the trusts could be down to serious failings in the way patients were treated, according to Professor Sir Brian Jarman.

He said a total of 4,600 more patients had died at the 25 trusts than would be expected between 2007 and 2008

Remember these are are NHS trusts that are ranked by the NHS as the BEST hospitals in Britain ? Why ? because as with the rest of the NHS, they self certify their OWN performance data. Which means a hospital such as the Mid Staffordshire can hide 1,200 unnecessary deaths, where's the Police investigation?

In total there are 381 top ranked, best of Britain NHS Trust hospitals, I would not be surprised to find out over the election campaign that most trusts scrape the bottom of the barrel when it comes to the ACTUAL treatment of patients as opposed to what is implied by self certified phony data.

Whilst americans are busy celebrating the passing of Obama's healthcare bill, the last thing American's need is their own version of NHS hell, that routinely kills patients masked by fictitious official data that disintegrates in the face scrutiny under public inquiries and that politicians are too scared to seriously reform due to the army of workers / voters that ride the NHS gravy train. The sooner the NHS is privatised the better the prospects for the health of ordinary Britains, as the unproductive NHS spending black hole that risks bankrupting Britain, which despite a tripling in its budget FAILS to deliver any improvement in health care.

Given the actual performance of the NHS, I would imagine that closing 1/3rd of NHS Hospitals and GP Surgeries would result in IMPROVED life expectancy for Brit's as well as contribute a £35 billion of annual savings to help bring the budget deficit under control. Unfortunately most MP's, including Labour Ministers are far too busy engaged in trying to sell their services to Lobbying firms at between £3,000 to £5,000 per day than concern themselves with the electorate's problems.

Given that 52% of MP's are crooked to some degree, voters should definitely use the the forthcoming General Election to vote out most MP's from ALL parties regardless of which party one may favour.

Meanwhile Britain continues to skip along the path towards hyperinflation and bankruptcy with Alistair Darling forecasting another £400 billion of new debt over the next 4 years to add to the existing £1 trillion debt mountain, more on that in my next article.
