QualityWatch is a major research programme providing independent scrutiny into how the quality of health and social care is changing over time.

Developed in partnership by the Nuffield Trust and the Health Foundation, QualityWatch provides in-depth analysis of key topics and tracks an extensive range of quality indicators.

It aims to provide an independent picture of the quality of care, and is designed to help those working in health and social care to identify priority areas for improvement.

The programme is primarily focused on the NHS and social care in England, but will draw on evidence from other UK and international health systems.

The QualityWatch website, launched in October 2013, presents key indicators by area of quality and sector of care, together with analysis of the data. The free online resource also provides research reports, interactive charts and expert commentary.

The research is led by Nuffield Trust Director of Research and Chief Economist John Appleby. The programme is managed by Senior Research Analyst Dr Elizabeth Fisher, supported by: Senior Research Analysts Holly Dorning and Dr Lucia Kossarova, analysts Nora Cooke O'Dowd and Eilís Keeble; Deputy Director of Policy Ruth Thorlby; and Fellow in Health Policy Holly Holder.
