Our quality story

Annual report and quality accounts

Every NHS trust is required to produce an annual report and annual accounts.

NHS foundation trusts, such as Guy's and St Thomas', have to submit these to Parliament and to our independent regulator, NHS Improvement. This happens in July each year and the reports are also published on our website.

Within the annual report, there is a chapter which reports on our annual quality accounts, and the quality accounts are also published on the NHS website.

The quality accounts are intended to allow people to compare the performance of different trusts as we are 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.

We also produce a summary annual review which highlights our key achievements and plans.
