Patient-led assessments of the care environment (PLACE)
PLACE is the new system for assessing the quality of the hospital environment, which replaces Patient Environment Action Team (PEAT) inspections from April 2013.
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 2020-2021.
If you have any comments about our quality account or our current or future quality improvement priorities please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) payment framework enables commissioners to reward excellence, by linking a proportion of NHS providers’ income to the achievement of local quality improvement goals. Our CQUINs for 2017-2019 are here.
Each year the board of directors agree a number of key quality priorities to ensure that we continue to improve the quality of our services. These priorities are developed with our stakeholders (clinical commissioning groups, social services, overview and scrutiny committees, Healthwatch and trust governors).
