Some people with myocardial infarction die before they can be admitted to hospital. There are variations in death rates among those who survive long enough to be admitted. Some of these deaths may be potentially preventable through faster ambulance response time and effective early treatments e.g. thrombolysis. The National Health Service (NHS) may be helped to prevent some of these deaths by seeing comparative figures and learning lessons from follow-up investigations.

The next release date for this indicator is to be confirmed.
