The deaths of 25 patients at a London NHS Trust have led a group of investigators to look into what wrong ways being adopted are leading to the same, a recent report has revealed.
Westminster Council's Scrutiny Committee that has been examining the Imperial College Healthcare is concerned regarding inadequate record-keeping by the trust.
It has been agreed by the healthcare running four hospitals that it had failed to keep proper records of almost 900 patients in May this year. Also, some records of cancer patients had even been lost by it.
The report has also found that a large number of patients had no choice but to wait for longer than 18 weeks for their treatment. Also, some amongst them had to suffer even when they needed to be cured within a fortnight.
While the review team has not found any of the 49 cases suffering or dying because of delays in appointments, 25 others amongst a total of 74 patients are still being questioned so as to confirm the cause of fatal consequences.
“Managers were more worried about their reputation than about patient safety. In a public forum they said no-one had come to harm. We believe they deliberately misled the council”, said Health Policy Scrutiny Committee’s Councillor Sarah Richardson.
