My CCG - performance
NHS England has introduced a new CCG improvement and assessment framework (IAF) to replace the NHS England CCG assurance framework. The new IAF came into effect from the 1st of April 2016.
The IAF is intended to embed a ‘triple aim’ in how CCGs work with NHS England:
From 2016/17, our CCG will receive an annual overall assessment. We will be given one of four ratings which are consistent with those used by the Care Quality Commission (CQC); outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate. In addition, CCGs will also be subject to an initial baseline assessment which will be based on our achievement in six clinical priority areas:
We will publish information on how we are doing in each of these six clinical priority areas. This will include information about our plans to develop services in each of these areas in the short and long term.
As well as the six national clinical priorities, we work to a number of local clinical priorities which are based around the health and care needs of our population.
These local priorities are:
The CCG scorecard includes 60 metrics over four domains: Better Health; Better Care; Sustainability and Leadership. You can view how our CCG is performing in each of these areas on the My NHS website.
The year end assessment for 2016/17 rates our CCG as 'Good'.
The year end assessment for 2015/16 rated our CCG as 'Good'.
