Royal Free named best large NHS trust in the country
THREE North London NHS trusts have come out on top in the influential Dr Foster’s Hospital Guide.
The Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead fared the best being named ‘large trust of the year’.
Chief executive David Sloman said the trust had been awarded the title in recognition of its excellent safety record and high clinical standards.
The Royal Free, along with University College London Hospital in Euston and The Whittington in Highgate, were also revealed to have among the lowest death rates in the country.
All three trusts were found to have significantly lower mortality ratios than expected.
