21st September 2012

Research has found almost four in every 100 people who have surgery are dying afterwards, according to the Daily Mail.

Rupert Pearse from Queen Mary, University of London, who headed the research, said: "It’s certainly very worrying and I believe some of these deaths are preventable. We need to get the overall mortality down to one in 100 deaths per patients." The researchers found the death rate in Britain was higher than countries such as Hungary and Estonia.
