NHS: Death Rates

Volume 495: debated on Wednesday 1 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 11 May 2009, Official Report, column 628W, on NHS: death rates, what the names are of the trusts concerned in each of the 85 alerts. (282939)

The Care Quality Commission, which took over from the Healthcare Commission on 1 April 2009, has informed us that they intend to publish information on alerts, including the names of the trusts involved, once the case is closed. A case is closed once the alert has been reviewed and concluded upon and any necessary action plan is in place. 75 out of the 85 alerts are closed and the Care Quality Commission will publish this information within the next few weeks.
