I am writing to complain about the lack of a performance league table to compare hospitals/clinics. I have been searching all morning to have become frustrated and annoyed. It is debilitating not being able to find what you are looking for. The data to create a performance league based on clinical excellence across exists but it spread across the internet and is difficult to find. I had a hip replacement at Pontefract Hospital which did not go well and despite following the usual complain processes, I have received no acknowledgement. If someone were to take responsibility and collate all the existing information into a league table it would make choice simpler for patients. I feel let down by the NHS. I know someone who works for NHS direct and when I proposed this idea to her she said it would reduce the volume of their calls by 40%. I am now aggravated and frustrated. I f the NHS don’t know about this then it’ll never be fixed
