- The scores demonstrate how well individual healthcare providers believe they are performing in key areas including food, cleanliness, infection control and patient environment (including bathroom areas, décor, lighting, floors and patient areas).
- NHS sites and NHS trusts are each given scores from 1 (unacceptable) to 5 (excellent) for standards of environment, food and dignity and privacy within buildings).
