The King's Fund has published 'Accounting for quality to the local community: findings from focus group research'. Quality accounts aim to increase NHS accountability by making more information about quality available to the public, and encourage boards (or the equivalent senior management) to focus more on quality improvement. This paper assesses how far current plans for quality accounts meet the first of those objectives. It outlines the conclusions of focus groups and argues that providers should look at quality accounts as a year-round process and should seek input from their local community from the outset. Participants in the focus groups emphasised the importance of the information provided to the public being robust, honest and presented in a readable way.
