This is a very useful site for UK health care consumers.

Developed by the Daily Telegraph newspaper and Dr Foster it is an information service that allows people to check the reputations, results and services provided by both NHS and Independent sector hospitals in their local areas.  It also gives some basic information about MRSA rates.

I am sure that in time the information provided will expand but it is definately a step in the right direction especially if it pushes the NHS in to realising that it should be treating its users as customers!
