QualityWatch This research programme provides independent scrutiny into how the quality of health and social care is changing
QualityWatch is a joint research programme from the Nuffield Trust and the Health Foundation, which we hope will both augment and inform the work of other statutory national bodies and initiatives.
QualityWatch aims to:
- provide an authoritative resource on the overall quality of health and social care
- independently monitor and comment on changes over time
- highlight areas where improvement is possible
- contribute to improving measures of quality.
