Each year, we publish our Quality Account. This is a report about the quality of services we provide to our patients. The reports are published annually by every healthcare provider - including the independent sector - and are available to the public.

Quality Accounts are an important way for local NHS services to report on quality and show improvements in the services they deliver to local communities and stakeholders.
