Foundation trust ratings

Here you can find foundation trusts' current governance and continuity of services ratings.

We publish two ratings for each NHS foundation trust:

  • continuity of services rating (rated 1-4, where 1 represents the highest risk and 4 the lowest)
  • governance rating (trusts are rated green if no issues are identified and red where we are taking enforcement action)

Foundation trusts' ratings are updated each quarter. We also update ratings in 'real time' to reflect regulatory action we take.

You can view the ratings for all NHS foundation trusts below, or filter using the A-Z listing. NHS foundation trusts are only allocated risk ratings once they have been authorised for a full quarter.
