AUKUH broadly supports the DH Proposed Framework for Quality Accounts
10 December 2009
The Association of UK University Hospitals (AUKUH) have responded to the Department of Health's proposed framework for Quality accounts. AUKUH believes that accountability for the Quality Account’s accuracy and performance-level should rest with the Board and that there should be a mandatory statement from them that explicitly references the accuracy and performance-level and the process the Board utilises to reach this assurance.
AUKUH supports the use of indicators but has highlighted that it is important that a clear rationale is included, and that methods for re-assessing be clearly indicated.
