NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I) has released the performance assessments for each of the 195 CCGs across the country (11 July 2019), following the Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) process, which was undertaken earlier this year. The IAF includes an assessment of the CCG’s leadership and financial management, amongst other indicators.
Paul Jennings, Chief Executive Officer of NHS Birmingham and Solihull CCG said: “I am very pleased that we have achieved a ‘good’ rating for our first year as a CCG. This provides us with a strong foundation for our future, as we continue to ensure the best possible and world class healthcare outcomes for everyone in Birmingham and Solihull.
“The rating reflects the hard work and determination of our colleagues, at a time when we were also creating the largest CCG in England.
“In the next year, we will be working even harder to achieve our priorities to tackle and reduce health inequalities; rebalance investment from crisis to prevention; and achieve closer integration between health and social care.”
