Quality Account documents

From June 2010, all health service providers have to submit a report about the quality of their services. Most organisations already use a system to publish Quality Accounts and maintain their profile pages on NHS Choices. For those without editing rights we will list the Quality Accounts on this page. To check your provider's profile, use the Find NHS trusts link.

Gradually, more and more healthcare providers will be able to edit their profile pages themselves. Acute trusts and independent sector providers will be able to upload Quality Accounts onto their profile pages from June 18 2010. All documents uploaded before this date will then be moved to the provider's profile page.

PDF requirements

A PDF's metadata should contain a title, an author (which can be an organisation), a subject (a short description of what the document is) and some keywords. Fields are provided for these items in the document properties.

Please ensure that the PDF's security settings do not allow editing. The settings should, however, allow printing, content copying, page extraction and filling of form fields.

Finally, PDFs should be 'tagged for accessibility', which is something you have the option of doing when creating a PDF.
