When hospital readmissions are required nearly 100% are made within 28 days

readmissiontable

Thanks to a parliamentary question, below, from Monica Lennon, we can see, from the above results table, provided in the answer, that it is extremely rare for patients to have to wait more than 28 days for readmission. One obvious reason for this performance is suggested further below.

A likely contributory factor in making the above near-100% performance possible seems likely to be the dramatically falling need for patients to return to theatre after surgery, described in recent research as: ‘a multi-year effort that has produced some of the largest population-wide reductions in surgical deaths ever documented:

Most impressive, is that the percentage of patients having to return for further surgery has fallen to almost zero! This comes after a period, under Labour, of worsening outcomes.
