BBC 1, 8.30pm on 3rd December 2012
Dr Foster was approached by Panorama to provide Hospital Guide 2012 mortality data to coincide with its scheduled programme “How safe is your hospital?”.
Dr Foster provided the information to ensure the data referenced in the programme was as up to date and accurate as possible. This included showing where improvements made by previously poorly performing trusts had occurred.
Beyond providing the most accurate data available, Dr Foster had no other involvement in the making of this programme.
