Death rates: Scunthorpe General Hospital under investigation
Scunthorpe General Hospital has been named as one of the 11 hospitals to be investigated following concerns over higher-than-expected death rates.
Chief executive of Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Karen Jackson, said: "We very much welcome the chance to be part of Sir Bruce Keogh's review as it will assist us with all the work we have already done to improve our mortality position.
"Sir Bruce has stressed that this not an inspection but an improvement exercise. He aims to ensure hospitals have the support they need to improve so this review gives us an additional learning opportunity.
"Positive patient experience is at the heart of everything we do and we aim to continue with our focus on delivering high quality care for all our patients. This priority is reflected within our organisational structure, culture and our day-to-day work on the frontline – how doctors and nurses treat the people in their care.
