A&E quality indicators

Nurse in accident and emergency

How we measure quality

When you visit A&E, we collect lots of information that helps us to monitor our performance.

We publish the data we gather in a set of nationally agreed formats called clinical quality indicators.

The data we collect includes:

  • effectiveness of care
  • patient experience
  • patient safety
  • timeliness of care

We analyse the information to help us

  • develop better clinical pathways so you get the right care, in the right place, at the right time
  • score ourselves against similar sized hospitals
  • identify improvements
  • review our performance
