Heart surgeons' performance to be posted online in transparency drive
Shiv MalikPatients undergoing heart surgery will have access to an unprecedented wealth of data about survival rates and the performance of their surgeon and hospital unit from Monday.
The Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery (SCTS) said it is launching a new website aimed at giving precise information on specific operation outcomes.
Ben Bridgewater, a consultant cardiac surgeon at the University Hospital of South Manchester and one of the main advocates for the new site, said patients would now be able to access "the most contemporaneous [surgical] data" available.
