ERIC

Last year we assisted over 18 Trusts with their ERIC returns. Client satisfaction remained extremely high at over 98.7%, even throughout what has been a challenging time for everyone.

We appreciate that NHS Teams are extremely busy and under enormous pressure this year and so we wanted to summarise our typical approach below, in the hope we can provide some assistance or support in anyway with your routine annual returns.


WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

In accordance with the Carter Benchmark and the Model Hospital comparator, it is essential that the data Trusts' gather for their ERIC returns is: 
 

  • Gathered in accordance with ERIC definitions

  • Accurately representing the service configuration

  • Quality assured and validated
     

It is vital that you are confident in the information submitted on behalf of your Trust as the ERIC data informs the Carter benchmarks and Model Hospital Comparator.
