Miss Melanie Johnson

Based upon data compiled for the national adult cardiac surgical database report 2003 by the Society of Cardiothoracic Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland, the survival rate for isolated, first-time coronary surgery in England has increased from 97.8 per cent. in 1998–99 to 98.2 per cent. in 2002–03 (latest figures available). The data are collected from individual hospitals so the identification of survival rates for specific local authorities is not possible.
