This toolkit is aimed at providers of NHS services, in order to offer advice as they set out to produce their Quality Accounts for June each year.
It seeks to consolidate the understanding of the purpose of Quality Accounts and to guide their production based on what the public, NHS staff and other interested parties have said during the national engagement and testing processes.
The toolkit will be updated as needed, which might not be every year. As the reporting requirements for 2011/12 have not changed, the current toolkit remains the 2010/11 toolkit.
