NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has a responsibility to commission comprehensive high quality healthcare services. In order to provide assurance that the CCG is meeting this responsibility, the organisation has established robust processes aligned with national and local regulatory standards of accountability, transparency and clinical effectiveness.
This includes ensuring that the services the CCG commissions from healthcare providers are efficient, effective and safe.
The key standards monitored by the CCG are outlined in the NHS Operating Framework, which is refreshed and published each year.
NHS England holds NHS Greenwich CCG to account and seeks regular assurance that performance standards are achieved and that the care provided by the organisation is of a high quality.
In July 2016, NHS England introduced a comprehensive, rigorous and transparent new approach to CCG ratings. CCGs are rated in 29 areas, underpinned by 60 indicators, all made available to patients for the first time on the myNHS website. The new areas include six clinical priorities matching those set out in the NHS Five Year Forward View, which will be assessed annually by independent expert panels. These are: cancer; dementia, diabetes; learning disabilities; maternity; and mental health.
