The Keogh Report

Surgeon checking stats

Following the Francis Inquiry, the medical director of NHS England led a review into the quality of care and treatment provided by 14 hospital trusts in England. His subsequent report identified some common challenges facing the wider NHS and set out a number of ambitions for improvement, which seek to tackle some of the underlying causes of poor care.

What does this mean for employers?

The report signalled the importance of monitoring mortality statistics to highlight any underlying issues around patient care and safety. Using the data to identify trusts who are performing positively will also be helpful in establishing and sharing effective practice across the NHS.

The Government issued its full response to the Francis Report on 19 November 2013. It included acknowledgement of, and a response to the reviews carried out in light of Francis, including Keogh.
