Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Improvement and Assessment Framework

CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework
Patient and Community Engagement Indicator

NHS England recently published the updated CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) for 2018/19.

The ‘Patient and Community Engagement Indicator’ in the CCG IAF is formally known as ‘Indicator 57: Compliance with statutory guidance on patient and public participation in commissioning health and care – 166a’. The indicator evidences CCGs’ implementation of the revised statutory guidance on patient and public participation in commissioning health and care and therefore their compliance with their statutory duty to involve the public (14Z2).

The framework and criteria for this indicator remain the same as for 2017/18. However, further to a review of the 2017/18 process and extensive feedback, a refreshed assessment approach has been developed for 2018/19.

NHS England has now published Guidance for CCGs to support them with the evidence submission process for the indicator in 2018/19:
