Many outcomes are measured for the Colorectal Unit as a group at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. We believe that publication of individual outcomes can be misleading - we work as a team and with many other practitioners and outcomes are affected by all groups not one individual. All our outcomes are within acceptable limits. Our 90 day mortality following elective colorectal surgery is amongst the best in the country.
