Concerns over death rates in Lanarkshire Hospitals

Independent inspectors are being sent into 3 Lanarkshire hospitals due to concerns regarding mortality figures. Despite country-wide measures having been put in place concerns have been raised due figures published by the Scottish Government.

It appears that clinical director for NHS Scotland Professor Jason Leitch has ordered the inspection after mortality rates had increased at Monklands General Hospital in Airdrie and Wishaw General from the previous year. Hairmyres Hospital in East Kilbride has been included in the investigation as their rate remains static and above the national average.

The reason as to why the figures abnormally high in this concentrated area is unknown. The focus of the investigation will be on identifying any underlying issues relating to care impacting on survivability rates. The Inspection team are due to report back to the Scottish Government with their findings at the end of the year.
