The role of these ratings is to indicate when there is a cause for
concern at a foundation trust. The ratings do not automatically trigger regulatory
action, they are simply a prompt to consider whether a more detailed
investigation is needed.
The governance rating: shows a degree of concern about how the trust is run, any steps being taken to investigate this and/or any action being taken. The directory either indicates whether there are no evident concerns, that enforcement action is underway, or that the foundation trust’s rating is ‘under review’, which means concerns have been identified but no action has been taken.
Foundation trusts’ ratings are updated each quarter and also in ‘real time’ to reflect any regulatory action.
