Record low on mixed-sex wards

19th August 2011

Latest figures have shown a significant fall in the numbers of patients being placed in mixed sex wards.

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said the Health Service had done a 'fantastic job' after it was revealed that numbers accommodated on such wards fell by 90% in the space of a few months. Last December, more than 11,000 patients were forced to share wards with the opposite sex, when the monthly collection of mixed-sex accommodation data was first introduced but last month just 1,126 in England were made to sleep on mixed sex wards last month.
