Malcolm’s reported outcome data for operations:
The green dot represents the number of operations and the risk adjusted mortality for Malcolm in the last three years. The x-axis (horizontal line across the bottom) is the number of operations during the analysis period, the y-axis (vertical line at left hand side) is the mortality rate adjusted for the expected risk of the patients undergoing surgery. The horizontal line represents the UK standard.
This outcomes curve demonstrates that Malcolm remains one of the clinically most active surgeons in the UK with a lower than expected operative mortality.
