    The PC’s draft paper landed on my doorstep today. I’m looking for comparative data on body mass at admission, by private and public. There’s plenty on ‘cost weights’ but no evidence that the simplest parameter has been analysed. Doesn’t wound infection risk increase by the kilogram? Those infection rates in Table 6.1 ought to be diced by body mass. Is that too hard?
    Maybe efficiencies (management practices) do not account for any of the better outcomes in private, at all.
    If I was a proceduralist with a financial interest in a specialist hospital, and on the staff of a public hospital, I wouldn’t mind if different sets of eyes were making calls on post-op wound infections.
    Wouldn’t it be so easy to photograph all wounds at day two and submit them all to an independent auditor?
