Over 2,000 'die from NHS errors

More than 2,000 people died in English hospitals last year (2005) due to lapses in patient safety, a watchdog says.

About 980,000 patient safety incidents and near misses were reported in the NHS, the National Audit Office found.

I've recently posted a link to your organisation and your campaign site on my own new blog here.

I have included a short introduction to my perception of your activities for my readers.

Please take a look at it if you wish. Please let me know if you do not like the neighbourhood or the company your site is keeping on my blog and wish me to remove it for any reason, or tell me about any changes you want me to make in the my introductory text or the classification of your work. I aim to please.

My email is

My blog is intended to highlight problems in our country’s public and private life and to show people where like-minded citizens and neighbours are working to make things better.

My blog is non-partisan and works in a positive, ‘can do’ spirit. Its overall ‘editorial policy’ is one which celebrates Britain’s past good achievements while by no means excusing its many faults, and it especially (but not exclusively) favours campaigns which use and celebrate Britain’s political tradition of freedom under the rule of law, piecemeal change, and which extol and expect personal responsibility.

As I work for government and government is so often criticised in my blogs, I publish under the name of North Northwester.

Whether you wish your link to stay here or tell to remove it, I wish you good fortune and the best of success with your efforts.


North Northwester.
