All health service providers have to submit a report about the quality of their services.
The NHS definition of quality includes the experience that patients have of services, the outcomes achieved for patients and the safety of patients. This includes both community-based and inpatient services. Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust is committed to continually improving the quality of our services.
Our performance against a number of quality metrics (indicators), our progress on our quality improvement priorities, and our quality improvement priorities for the year ahead are set out in our quality account for 2016-2017.
You can access a two page summary of our current quality account here.
If you have any comments about our quality account or our current or future quality improvement priorities please email firstname.lastname@example.org
