Does anyone know how to find out which hospital or hospitals have the highest success rate for a first ablation? On their website St Bartholomews say they have higher than average success rates for heart procedures generally but do not refer to ablations specifically. Obviously, a hospital with even a 5% higher success rate would be worth looking at (provided its safety record is also good). Patients are supposed to be able to choose which hospital will treat them, but how can this be done in an informed way if the data is not available? I suppose it’s possible to ring the hospital, but it’s very difficult to know who would have this information. I tried on Friday with little success.
