Health secretary orders review into new rating system for NHS and social care

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt has ordered a review of the way that information on NHS and social care services is given to patients and the public.

The study will assess the merits of an Ofsted-style system of ratings for hospitals and care homes.It will look at the way in which a new ratings system could help improve standards of care across the health and social care system. In particular, it will look at how information about services can be communicated to the public and how this information can be used to drive up standards across the system.
