Each month we report to our Board on how we are performing against national targets including quality and safety, operational performance, workforce and organisational development and finance. This also shows how we are delivering against our annual Operating Plan. More information is available in our Integrated Performance Report.

Our annual Quality Account provides information about the quality of care and services we provide and our key achievements. It highlights our priorities and specific areas of focus for the coming year. The Quality Account and associated priorities focus on patient safety, patient experience and clinical effectiveness. We are working to continuously improve to ensure our patients, their families and carers receive the best possible care. We aim to improve our services based on what our patients say matters most to them. A full range of quality measures and how we are working towards achieving these is reported to the Trust Board and Quality and Performance Committee monthly.
