ESNEFT quality reporting
All providers of NHS services in England have a statutory duty to produce an annual report to the public about the quality of services they deliver. This is called the Quality Account.
Quality Accounts aim to increase public accountability and drive quality improvement by reviewing their performance over the previous year, identifying areas for improvement (quality priorities), and publish this with a commitment to you about how those improvements will be made and monitored over the next year.
Quality consists of three areas which are key to the delivery of high quality services:
- Patient safety.
- Clinical effectiveness.
- Patient experience.
Legacy organisations’ reports 2017/18
Below is the Quality Account 2017/18 for The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust (IHT). This document is a Quality Account, because IHT was not a Foundation Trust.
The equivalent report for Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust, forms part of the Annual Report, Annual Accounts and Quality Report which will be published on 2 August 2018.
