How is the NHS performing? September 2016: Quarterly Monitoring Report

This content relates to the following topics:

Part of Quarterly monitoring report (QMR)

The King’s Fund published its first Quarterly monitoring report in April 2011 as part of its work to track, analyse and comment on the changes and challenges the health and care system is facing. This is the 20th report and aims to take stock of what has happened over the past quarter and to assess the state of the health and care system. It provides an update on how the NHS is coping as it continues to grapple with productivity and reform challenges under continued financial pressure.

The Quarterly monitoring report combines publicly available data on selected NHS performance measures with views from NHS finance directors and clinical commissioning group (CCG) finance leads.

Failure to take into account 'Holistically' the rights of those subject to Section 117 of the 1983 MHA is a real problem: Individuals placed into Residential Care are not required to Privately Fund this themselves, the LA and the CCGs are exploiting this very vulnerable 'group' by NOT informing family member Appointees of their rights under the Care Act 2014.

Residential Care Homes are supposed to implement 'Care Plans' this would identify the truth? but are family Appointees aware of their involvement in this process, and are they given copies of the 'Care Plan'.

My recent discovery put a new 'light' on what 'transparency' is about, and where does the CQC fit into this when carrying out their Inspections.

My recent discovery would suggest my 'findings' are the 'tip' of the 'iceberg'.

'Supported accommodation' for those subject to section 117 applies, currently under investigation.

The 'Monitoring' of the above, and my 'findings' suggest NHS/CCG/LA are NOT implementing the ACTS/LAWS, which puts a 'whole' new 'light' on your REPORTS.
