Improving Outcomes for Patients
St George’s employs around 600 consultants across 52 services. Our consultants in the specialties listed below are required to publish data on the outcomes of the procedures they carry out. This data can help you to make an informed decision about your care and allows you to see how our consultant’s perform compared to consultants at other trusts carrying out the same types of procedures.
The consultant data is available on their relevant specialty society’s website. For example, the information about cardiothoracic surgery is hosted on the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery website. The data is presented in a variety of ways but where possible we have included links directly to the data for St George’s consultants. We are unable however to guarantee the accessibility or the availability of the websites the data is provided on.
You may wish to discuss the data and information with your GP, or with your consultant before your operation. Further information on the consultant data and how it can be used to make an informed decision about your care is available on the NHS Choices website
