Annual reports and accounts
Our annual reports chart changes and improvements over each year. They show where our money comes from and how we spend it.
Our accounts are reviewed by an external auditor to make sure they are a fair assessment before they are submitted to NHS England and NHS Improvement, and to Parliament.
The quality accounts are intended to allow people to compare the performance of different trusts as we're all required to report on the same things. They contain the quality priorities that we set for our hospital and community services, and report back on our progress in achieving the priorities that we set ourselves last year.
Since 2013 our quality report has been published as part of our Annual Report.

Quality accounts 2020/21
Due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the NHS, foundation trusts were advised by NHS England that inclusion of a quality report in the Annual Report and Accounts 2021-22 was optional. This year's quality report has therefore been produced as a stand-alone document which is available below. This document is also published on the NHS website.
