Board assurance framework for seven day hospital services


The board assurance framework is the new approach to measuring progress in implementing seven day hospital services (7DS).

This new measurement system replaces the previous self-assessment survey and consists of a standard measurement and reporting template, which all providers of acute services will complete with self-assessments of their delivery of the 7DS clinical standards. 

This self-assessment will then be formally assured by the trust board and the completed template submitted to regional 7DS leads to enable measurement against the national ambitions for 7DS.
