performance ratings

The tiering of organisations—e.g., acute (hospital) trusts, primary care trusts (PCTs) and mental health trusts in the UK—based on their performance against standards set by public bodies (e.g., the Commission for Health Improvement, the independent regulator of NHS performance which passed its functions to the Healthcare Commission in 2009). Central government is responsible for setting priorities, which in turn determine performance indicators (PIs) relating to key targets. Performance ratings (PRs) are designed to illustrate the clinical and managerial effectiveness of health care. PRs for social services are developed from PIs published by the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI), England’s independent inspectorate for social care services, review of plans and in-year performance information from both the CSCI and external auditors for each council.
