NHS England has produced an annual reporting guide for CCGs and NHS England staff. It sets out the organisations’ responsibilities to report on how they meet their legal duties to involve patients and the public in their work. The guide includes useful tools, resources and good practice examples to support the development of annual reports. It also provides advice on making reports accessible and appealing.
The guide has been co-produced with CCG leads, local Healthwatch and voluntary and community sector organisations. CCGs and NHS England should use the guide to inform their annual reporting processes for 2016-17 and going forward.
