assessment scores

assessment scores

A generic UK term which, as refers to NHS patients, corresponds to measures of a patient's condition over time, e.g., mobility assessed at various time-points post hip replacement operation. Such scores may correspond to recognised standards (e.g., Bartel scoring for elderly long-stay patients), or are developed according to local needs.
