CCG gets clean bill of health

NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group has passed its annual assurance review from NHS England with a glowing report which highlights strong partnerships with external stakeholders, good practice in engagement and involvement activity and a very strong “team” approach in delivering its business.

The review was undertaken as part of NHS England’s assurance framework which makes sure that every CCG across the country continues to meet its responsibilities to patients and the public in six areas of responsibility: quality of services, engagement, outcomes for patients, governance, partnership working and leadership.

NHS England also noted the work that NHS North Kirklees CCG has put into improving quality assurance mechanisms with service providers, its robust contract management arrangements and its grip on finances.

Chief Officer, Chris Dowse said she was delighted to get such a positive report from NHS England.

“ As a new organisation, it’s really encouraging to have such positive feedback from our assurance review.  It reflects the huge amount of work and commitment everyone at NHS North Kirklees CCG puts into making local health services the best they can be for local people.

“ We were asked to develop just two areas of our work: governance of strategic plans where these involve a wide range of organisations and  joint commissioning of primary care and specialised services. These are both ‘big ticket’ items, but we will rise to the challenge in the coming months,” she added.
