Call to publish bed occupancy rates

20th October 2008

The Royal College of Surgeons has said the government needs to make public the bed occupancy statistics for wards in hospitals in England.

Currently data only shows occupancy rates per hospital, not per ward. The College's policy document says this lack of information "means that patients concerned about the risk of infection cannot make an informed choice about where they go for their surgery."
