Why do you produce an annual report?

Our annual report gives staff, stakeholders and the general public a comprehensive review of the past year. Included in the annual report is information on:

  • Our services and the quality of care we provide

  • Patients' experience of the Trust

  • Corporate social responsibility

  • Performance against key targets

  • Quality governance (how we ensure quality of care)

  • Financial accounts.

What happens to your annual report?

Our annual report is checked by external auditors. It is then laid before parliament each year and presented to NHS Improvement, the independent regulator of NHS Foundation Trusts. 

The annual report is then presented at our Annual Members Meeting (AMM) - a meeting to which all our Trust members are invited, along with members of the public.

Auditor's Annual Report

From 2020-21 onwards, the National Audit Office requires audited bodies to publish the Auditor’s Annual Report on their website. Our Auditor's Annual Report summarises the work undertaken by our auditor on our behalf during the year.

Quality Account 

From 2019/20 onwards the requirement to include the full quality report within our annual report was stopped.  We continue to produce the statutory Quality Account.   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. The quality of the services is measured by looking at patient safety, the effectiveness of treatments patients receive, and patient feedback about the care provided.
