The appropriate care score is the way in which Advancing Quality (AQ) measures the standard of care you receive when you are treated in hospital on an AQ pathway.
Across the 12 pathways the score has increased from roughly 60% of patients receiving the appropriate care for their condition to over 80%. Performance of trusts participating in the AQ programme varies and you can find the performance of your local hospital by searching for it by hospital name or by town
In 2013 Advancing Quality won a national award for measuring excellence.
