Private hospital online.

Patients and GPs can now get easy access to information about a private North East hospital as part of a new initiative.

For the first time a range of information about the BUPA Hospital Washington's clinical and service quality statistics will be available online.

Information published at bupahospitals.co.uk will include infection rates at the hospital, re-admission rates, and patient satisfaction surveys covering issues such as hospital cleanliness and nursing care.

It is hoped the site could help patients considering private care to make their minds up.

"BUPA Hospitals is committed to informed patient choice and we're delighted to be the standard bearer for the independent sector by publishing this data," said Jeff Collyer, operations manager for BUPA Hospital Washington.
