About us

Our Performance

York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a large, complex and diverse organisation. 

We have tight monitoring systems in place to make sure we consistently meet all the national performance targets set by the Care Quality Commission (England's healthcare watchdog), as well as delivering a high quality and safe service to all our patients.

What does the Care Quality Commission (CQC) say about us?

All NHS bodies are subject to a number of external reviews to assess performance and the outcomes are made available to the public and other healthcare organisations. 

The Care Quality Commission carry out regular checks on our hospitals. The latest inspection of our hospitals showed that all essential standards are being met.

Our current rating is 'Requires Improvement'.  For more information and to read our latest report please click here to be taken to the CQC's website.

Quality audits and performance reports

We have an active programme of clinical audit. Clinical Audit is the process by which our own quality of care is compared with exemplar standards. Clinical audit is undertaken as part of our Clinical Governance framework to help us ensure that our hospitals and services are safe.  Details of our performance reports presented to the Trust Board will be available here.    

Consultant treatment outcomes

NHS England has begun the staged publication of mortality rates for individual hospital consultants in ten specialties, giving patients more information about their treatment, and helping the NHS drive up and maintain the quality of care.  You can access data for our trust here.  The data also can be seen on the NHS website.
