Annual health check scores, trusts too optimistic

23rd October 2008

Over two thirds of NHS trusts were given lower scores for standards by inspectors than the ones they marked themselves, says the Healthcare Commision.

The Commission visited the trusts as part of the annual health check. Some of the trusts are disputing the marks they have been given. A commission spokesperson said: "When people do poorly in an assessment, they sometimes seek to take issue with the test. But patients want trusts to concentrate on the issues the results raise. We would therefore urge trusts to respond to what the assessment shows."
