This conference will focus on Mortality Monitoring: where are we now?  Understanding how to measure and avoid unnecessary deaths in Hospital, coinciding with Jeremy Hunt's recent call to eradicate avoidable hospital deaths:

"I want all hospital boards to have a laser-like focus on eradicating avoidable deaths in their organisation; even one life lost to poor care or safety error is too many”
Jeremy Hunt, Minister of State for Health, 8th February 2015

Labour said it would "look at the detail, but from what we have seen this does not appear ambitious enough". It added it was "looking at whether we can go further and have a mandatory review of case notes for every death in hospital - not just for a sample of cases as Jeremy Hunt proposes".
