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.
Our performance against a number of quality metrics (indicators) and our quality improvement priorities are set out in our quality account.Download Quality Account
If you have any comments about our quality account or our current or future quality improvement priorities please email email@example.com
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.
