Improvement and assessment framework
All CCGs are assessed by NHS England every quarter to ensure that they are delivering quality services that provide better outcomes for patients.
Read more here about how the CCG’s year-end assurance assessment for 2016/17 was rated “Outstanding”.
The CCG improvement and assessment framework for 2016-17 sets out four domains and six clinical indicators that reflect the key elements of a well led effective clinical commissioner and underpin assurance discussions between CCGs and NHS England, whilst identifying ongoing ambitions for CCG development.
Our performance is captured within the Hull CCG Annual Report and Accounts 2016–17 on pages 22 – 58. You can view the full Annual Report and Accounts for 2016-17 here.
My NHS Improvement Assessment Framework (IAF) indicators
The latest CCG Improvement Assessment Framework (IAF) indicators are published online via ‘My NHS’. CCGs are assessed in four key ‘domains’ (below):
- Better Health: this section looks at how the CCG is contributing towards improving the health and wellbeing of its population;
- Better Care: this principally focuses on care redesign, performance of constitutional standards, and outcomes, including in important clinical areas;
- Sustainability: this section looks at how the CCG is remaining in financial balance, and is securing good value for patients and the public from the money it spends;
- Leadership: this domain assesses the quality of the CCG’s leadership, the quality of its plans, how the CCG works with its partners, and the governance arrangements, for example in managing conflicts of interest.
The Clinical Indicators relate to:
- Mental health
- Learning disabilities
