What are quality accounts?
Quality Accounts are annual reports to the public from the providers of healthcare about the quality of services they deliver. The accounts are both retrospective and forward looking. A review of quality for 2017/18 is included in this year’s accounts alongside the priorities for quality improvement in 2018/19.
A summary / easy read version of the Quality Account 2017/18 has also been developed to summarise key performance from 2017/18 and priorities for improvement for 2018/19.

Sustainability and Transformation Plan
This plan is the first stage in a programme of work for a partnership of 21 organisations comprising NHS commissioners and providers, such as Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, plus local authorities and other community based organisations, which began in April 2016.
Emma Latimer, Humber Coast and Vale STP Lead said:
“Our vision is for people in Humber Coast and Vale to start well, live well and age well. To do that, we must support everyone to manage their own care better, reduce dependence on hospitals and use our resources more efficiently so that we can all rely upon access to good, safe services into the future.
STP partners will continue to work with staff, stakeholders and the public to build the plan, ensuring the involvement of everyone in future conversations around the draft proposals.”
STPs are about making practical changes to the way health and social care services are delivered in the face of growing demand for services, a long-term shortage of the skilled people needed to provide them and, in spite of increased funding into the NHS, a projected financial gap for the Humber Coast and Vale system of £420m by 2021.
23% of the 1.4m people in Humber Coast and Vale lives in the most deprived areas of England and, as a result, the region has significant variations in health outcomes across its communities, leaving too many people at greater risk of developing long term conditions that seriously impair their lives and future prospects.
Every year, we are required to self-certify whether we meet minimum standards in corporate governance. These standards are based on the key roles undertaken by the Trust Board and cover the corporate governance framework, such as risk management, the Trust Board and its supporting committee structure, and how we monitor information about the NHS Constitution, specifically the waiting times for care and treatment by its patients.
