Dying for a good NHS

If 2,000 people were killed on the railways each year yet rail safety was not improved, it would be a national disgrace.

Why should the NHS be immune? Should we be grateful that only 2,000 people died despite nearly 1m near misses?

Update: Whilst the BBC mentions "numbers of deaths [] could be even higher", it is left to the Times to say that it could be as high as 34,000!

And that doesn't include hospital acquired infections!
