We are committed to improving quality outcomes for our residents.
Since the advent of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are responsible for commissioning safe, cost effective and high quality services.
The NHS Patient Safety Strategy: safer culture, safer systems, safer patients, published in 2019, highlights the importance of continuously improving and maintaining a clear focus on quality of care, to enable us to always strive for the best.
We have ambition for all of our providers to achieve good and beyond ratings at Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection and will be working hard to support them in succeeding with this, helping to make our health care system safe and sustainable.
Maintaining and improving quality and safety must be the organising principle of our healthcare services, informed by our understanding of the population we serve and the constraints under which our system operates.
