Increased intensive care funding saves lives13th November 2009
Research by scientists from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has found thousands of lives have been saved by increased intensive care funding and the introduction of treatment guidelines.
They say that extra beds, more outreach services and the adoption of clinical standards had cut the intensive care mortality rate by 11.3%. The changes were adopted after a £300m investment by the Department of Health in 2000, designed to increase the number of hospital beds by 35%.
