Public reporting of contractual sanctions applied by commissioners:
NHS commissioners are now required to publish on their websites details of the financial sanctions due and actually applied to each of their major providers for failure to achieve national standards set out in their contracts.
Commissioners must report individually on sanctions for all their contracts, whether they are the co-ordinating commissioner or not. Values need only be reported where the sanction in respect of a particular standard for that commissioner at the relevant provider exceeds £1,000 in the reporting period. Where a sanction is applied only annually, the position need only be reported annually.
Birmingham and Solihull CCG is using the national non-mandatory model template for publication of sanctions as provided on the NHS England website.
Provider Quality Accounts:
Each year providers of NHS healthcare are required to publish a report about the quality of their services.
Quality Accounts are an important way for local NHS services to report on quality and show improvements in the services they deliver to local communities and stakeholders.
The quality of the services is measured by looking at patient safety, the effectiveness of treatments that patients receive and patient feedback about the care provided.
The Department of Health requires providers to submit their final Quality Account to the Secretary of State by uploading it to the NHS Choices website by 30 June each year.
Further information on quality accounts can be found on the NHS Choices website.
