The NHS Trust Development Authority is here to provide support, oversight and governance for all NHS Trusts on their journey to delivering what patients want; high quality services today, secure for tomorrow.
The range of services provided by NHS Trusts covers the entire spectrum of healthcare, from acute hospitals to ambulance services through to mental health and community providers; the size of organisation varies from very small providers through to some of the largest organisations in the NHS, and therefore each Trust has a set of unique challenges.
Due to this variation, we recognise that there is not going to be a ‘one size fits all’ solution to the challenges Trusts face. Our goal is first and foremost to help each and every NHS Trust to improve the services they provide for their patients.
The NHS Trust Development Authority’s Summer Report, published in September 2013, sets out how NHS Trusts have performed in the four months to July 2013.
Delivering High Quality Care for Patients: The Accountability Framework for NHS Trust Boards, sets out a clear set of rules under which we should all operate, underpinned by clear principles which should guide our judgement, both on the day-today decisions we take as well as the long term strategic ambitions we drive forward.
