In 2013, the Keogh report on death rates in hospitals was published, which showed that the number of excess deaths at Medway Hospital was 232, which was significantly higher than expected. This would have no doubt come as distressing news for anyone who lost a loved one whilst receiving treatment at Medway Hospital.
The Report led to the Trust being put into â€œSpecial Measuresâ€ in July 2013.
Have these measures resulted in an improvement? Sadly not. A recent review showed that death rates have failed to improve at the hospital and it is to remain in special measures indefinitely.
