Monitor has launched an
8-week consultation on the proposed amendments to the NHS Foundation Trust
Annual Reporting Manual for 2011/12. The consultation also covers
external assurance on quality reports and in particular includes reporting on
sustainable development (SD). It would be useful if Foundation Trusts responded
and highlighted the need for SD reporting to be mandatory. More
information can be found on Monitor’s website or in the PDF attached below. Responses
should be sent to Monitor by the 18th December.
