Blood poisoning investigation at Royal Bolton

28th February 2013

An investigation has been launched at the Royal Bolton Hospital into unusually high numbers of septicaemia deaths.

Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) confirmed the trust recorded 800 cases from March 2011 to April 2012, a figure which is four times higher than would have been expected in a trust similar in size. Bolton NHS Foundation Trust has confirmed it received information about an initial audit about potential discrepancies in the way the trust coded mortality information in 50 cases during that period.
