Summary: Measurement of health-care quality in the UK is no longer restricted to evaluating the effectiveness of treatments or the cost efficiency of services. There is a drive towards a patient-based agenda which enables them to make a clear contribution to the way services are shaped by expressing their values and sharing experiences. Positive engagement with HIV care has proven benefits to patients and the mandatory use of standardized reported outcome measures provides an opportunity to include HIV patients in the process of creating and refining an evaluation tool which places emphasis on aspects of care that are significant to them. Ultimately, this will provide services users with a stronger voice to guide appropriate service change and support the continuing improvement of HIV care.
