CCG improvement and assessment 2018/19 | NHS England
The CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) has been updated for 2018/19. It outlines the metrics that will inform NHS England’s assessment of CCGs in 2018/19.
The ambition described in Next steps on the Five Year Forward View can only be delivered through place-based partnerships spanning commissioners, local government, providers, patients, communities, and the voluntary and independent sectors. The Improvement and Assessment Framework is designed to assess individual CCGs’ fitness to operate successfully in this environment, and the indicators within it do not only report on data that is solely within a CCG’s control.
The framework is intended as a focal point for joint work, support and dialogue between NHS England, NHS Improvement, CCGs, providers and STPs/ICSs.
The CCG IAF document is supported by a Technical Annex which explains the rationale and detail of each of the indicators.
