NHS England Assessment of CCG Performance
The CCG assurance process has been designed to provide confidence to stakeholders and the wider public that CCGs are operating effectively to commission safe, high quality and sustainable services within their resources.
The assessment is made through four checkpoint meetings held throughout the year where NHS England in our case NHS England; Durham, Darlington and Tees; meet with CCGs to review how well they have been delivering against their plans and to discuss progress against the five CCG assurance domains. The CCG also holds teleconferences with NHS England in order to keep them up to date with progress in between the meetings.
For the financial year 2015/16 the CCG was assured as Good.
