An Edmonton hospital has one of the lowest mortality rates in England.

North Middlesex University Hospital in Sterling Way, Edmonton was one of only 12 hospitals to receive a ‘lower than expected’ mortality ratio.

The research was conducted by the Health and Social Care Information Centre between July 2011 and June 2013.

The test measured the ratio between the expected number of patient deaths after treatment at a hospital and the actual deaths following treatment.

Since the findings, the hospital has expanded to cover the closure of accident and emergency at Chase Farm Hospital in The Ridgeway, Enfield.

Julie Lowe, chief executive of North Middlesex University Hospital, said: “This key measure shows how well we perform nationally when it comes to the quality of care we provide. We continue to strive to provide high quality care to all our patients and are delighted to be among the 12 highest performers in the country.”
