A&E quality indicators
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
