Five hospitals told to take action over death rates

FIVE Scottish hospitals have been ordered to take action after figures revealed they had higher than average death rates.

Health Improvement Scotland (HIS), the health service watchdog, has called for the hospitals to produce action plans after figures showed higher than expected “standardised mortality ratios”.

The Western Isles Hospital, in Stornoway; Monklands Hospital, North Lanarkshire; Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline; Royal Alexandra Hospital, Paisley; and the Vale of Leven Hospital, in West Dunbartonshire, have all been ordered to take action.
