Can anyone help me to find the total deaths attributed to iatrogenesis in a single, recent year in the UK (preferably 2011)?
Google seems to be remarkably unhelpful, since the first few pages of results give figures for the US, or scenarios for particular conditions—such as CJD or AIDS—or are from highly suspect sources, such as chiropractic websites.
The most common figure that I can find is astonishingly high—can it really be true that doctors kill some 52,000 people a year by being utterly crap?
Oh, and if anyone thinks that I want these figures in order to launch a sustained attack on the medical profession then let me assure you that nothing could be closer to the truth.
