The Royal College of Nursing’s London director Bernell Bussue said: “This is really good news for patients in London. NHS staff, and nurses in particular, have taken a lot of criticism in recent weeks. London’s hospitals face significant pressures with budgets cuts, service restructuring and real pressure on resources. Despite this, these figures show that London’s Trusts currently have the best mortality outcomes in the country.”
