Very interesting, thank you. Is it possible that the reported outcomes are affected by the treatment and support provided after surgery, and after discharge from secondary care? Have you been able to establish the comprehensiveness of the pathways provided in the health systems around the individual acute providers e.g. where and how much rehab is provided, physio support etc.. I'm thinking that it's possible that an acute trust may be low on the list but that is a reflection of poor provision outside secondary care which may be available elsewhere.
Thank you, it's great to know where these hospitals have all ranked, it can be difficult to get honest recommendations. When my mother had her hip replacement we asked around locally and decided in the end that it was best to go private. I'm glad we did, the treatment was brilliant and it gave the whole family some peace of mind.
