The 2013 Dr Foster Hospital Guide has four special themes:
- Whether financial austerity is changing how money is spent on hospital treatments.
- The impact of drug and alcohol problems on patients and hospitals.
- The quality of care at weekends (commonly called the “weekend effect”).
- Hospital mortality rates.
