NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin CCG is a new single organisation which was established on 1 April, 2021. Please note that policies will be uploaded to this website as soon as documents are approved for publication.
This webpage will be regularly reviewed to ensure it is as up-to-date as possible.
The Uniform & Dress Code Policy is designed to guide managers and employees on the application of the CCG standards of dress and appearance.
This policy exists to help protect CCG staff, the public and other stakeholders from the risks of infection and for the CCGs to comply with national guidance and legislation.
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.
We are committed to reducing healthcare associated infections.
This commitment is demonstrated through the inclusion of an Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Team in the CCG’s quality structure.
We expect services we commission to comply with specific regulations. In relation to Infection Prevention and Control the expectation is that services will be delivered as set out in The Health and Social Care Act 2008 Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance.
The IPC team is responsible for monitoring the quality and standards of infection prevention and control in local healthcare services including Acute (hospital/treatment centres) and Community Services.
The team is also responsible for supporting continuous quality improvement in relation to infection prevention within primary care services and the independent care sector, including nursing and residential care homes.
