Thurrock CCG’s has been rated as ‘Good’ in an annual assessment conducted by NHS England.
NHS England’s Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) is conducted annually to assess the overall performance of CCGs including in leadership and financial management.
The Assessment builds on the IAF introduced in April 2016, which replaced both the existing CCG assurance framework and CCG performance dashboard, and was designed to provide a greater focus on assisting improvement, alongside NHSE’s statutory assessment function.
In addition, the CCG is also proud to have achieved a ‘Green’ rating for its public participation and involvement (PPI) work. The review of CCG’s statutory duty to involve the public in decision making was first carried out in 2017, using a web based research method. The CCG has received 11 points out of 15.
Mandy Ansell, Accountable Officer at Thurrock CCG said:
“We have worked tirelessly improve our processes and governance. This means we can be effective in ensuring we are able to commission the best possible health and care services for the people of Thurrock.
“We are also proud of our track record on public engagement and involvement. With our Lay Member for PPI and our work with our partners in Healthwatch Thurrock and the voluntary sector we have been able to include patients in the shaping of local services.”
