PharmaTimes writes the latest national heart failure audit has found a significant downturn in the mortality rate among heart failure patients admitted to hospital over the past year, but says the number of deaths remains too high as does the variation in care between trusts. The audit, which is managed by the National Institute of Cardiovascular Outcomes Research (NICOR), looked at data from 66,695 admissions to hospitals in England and Wales between April 2015 and March 2016.
