Dr Foster publishes weekend mortality data

In preparation of the 2012 Hospital Guide publication in late November, Dr Foster partnered with the Guardian on a story focused on the variances in mortality when patients are admitted at the weekend.


A downloadable infographic visually depicts these differences and can be found though our new Facebook page, facebook.com/drfosterintel.

A live Dr Foster tweet chat was held on 16th October for healthcare professionals and the public to pose questions on the data and weekend working to our panel of experts which included:

  • Roger Taylor – Co-Founder and Director of Research, Dr Foster Intelligence (@RTaylorDrFoster)
  • Denis Campbell – Health Editor, Guardian (@Denis_Campbell)
  • Prof Sir Brian Jarman – Emeritus Professor at Imperial College (@jarmann)

The archive of the chat which used the hashtag #drfhg can be read through Storify.
