NHS England and NHS Improvement has a statutory duty to undertake an annual assessment of the performance of every clinical commissioning group (CCG) in England.
It meets this duty through the NHS System Oversight Framework (known as the NHS SOF).
The CCG end-of-year assessment process for 2020/21 was simplified due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the change in priorities in response to this.
There was no algorithmic assessment to provide an overall rating of our CCG for 2020/21 as there has been in previous years. Instead, a letter was provided by NHS England and NHS Improvement which gives a narrative assessment of our CCG’s performance.
You can find out more and read the letter from NHS England and NHS Improvement assessing our CCG’s performance during 2020/21.
