Macknight, N. and Bailey, K. and Chappel, D. and Wilkinson, J.R. (2005) 'Revascularisation surgery in the North East of England.', Discussion Paper. North East Public Health Observatory, Stockton on Tees.
There has been variable progress in the North East of England towards achieving the National Service Framework targets for revascularisation surgery rates and there is considerable variation between primary care trusts (PCTs). • All North East PCTs fall short of the NSF target of performing all revascularisations within 3 months of the decision to operate. • Only 3 PCTs in the region meet the NSF target for the minimum rate of 1,500 revascularisations per million population, when adjusted for need using CHD crude death rate. • Revascularisation rates for males exceed those for females across all age groups. • Revascularisation provision does not reflect need in the most socially deprived groups.
