The annual health check

The Healthcare Commission’s overriding aim is to promote improvements in the healthcare that patients receive. The most important way in which we do this is through our annual health check of all NHS trusts in England. This section contains the information that trusts need for each assessment cycle, along with national and regional results for each year since the first annual health check in 2005/06.
