Guidance for NHS foundation trusts on producing their 2017/18 annual reports and accounts.

NHS foundation trust annual reporting manual 2017/18: update PDF, 298.1 KB

In January 2018 we published this update to the FT ARM which adds extra requirements. We have not amended the original FT ARM document. This document was updated in April 2018.

All NHS foundation trusts must publish annual reports and accounts to allow scrutiny of the year’s operations and outcomes.

This guidance outlines the process foundation trusts should follow when producing and submitting these documents.

This does not apply to NHS trusts. NHS trusts should refer to the Department of Health's new Group Accounting Manual.

Given there are no significant changes in 2017/18 compared to 2016/17, we have issued this document without a consultation this year. The main changes are listed on page three.
