QualityWatch annual statement

Each year, we publish an annual review of the state of care quality in the NHS in England. Our most recent statement presents a look back across quality over the past decade, with analysis of key trends in data on key performance measures and expert opinion on aspects of health and social care. In previous years we published reports drawing on data from our extensive range of healthcare quality indicators and in-depth 'Focus on' reports
