I have a simple request relating to your press release:
"Around 20 per cent of emergency cases of AKI are preventable which would save around 12,000 lives each year in England."
I would like to know how you calculated this figure of 12,000 'preventable' deaths.
The best recent research estimates that in total there are only approximately 11,859 preventable deaths per year in the whole NHS.
I would be grateful if you could justify this 12,000 number for AKI or consider withdrawing it from your website and press release, as in my opinion it is inaccurate and potentially scaremongering,
