Today, NHS Improvement has published an independent mortality review of our heart surgery service at St George’s Hospital:…

The review found failings in the care we gave many heart surgery patients between 2013-2018, and we are deeply sorry for this. [1/4] We would like to say sorry to the relatives of those patients who were let down by us – the care they received fell far short of the high standards they deserved.

We are in direct contact with relatives, and continuing to offer them all the support we can. [2/4]
