NHS Oversight Framework Patient and Community Engagement Indicator

The NHS Oversight Framework for 2019/20  replaced the CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) and the provider Single Oversight Framework, and  informed assessment of CCGs in 2019/20.

The ‘Patient and Community Engagement Indicator’ in the NHS Oversight Framework was formally known as ‘Indicator 52: 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 assessment framework and criteria for this indicator remained the same as for 2018/19. However, further to feedback from stakeholders including CCGs, NHS England and NHS Improvement colleagues, and other partners; a refreshed assessment process was introduced for CCGs approved to merge from April 2020.

NHS England and NHS Improvement published guidance to support CCGs with the evidence submission process for the indicator in 2019/20.
