My CCG performance
The CCG improvement and assessment framework (IAF)
To do this, our role is to plan, buy and monitor services. These services include local NHS services or services from the voluntary and community sector. We also work closely with other organisations such as other local CCGs (including NHS Bradford City CCG and NHS Bradford Districts CCG), councils and those in the voluntary and community sector to ensure services are sustainable and fit for the future.
Our CCG is introducing a new primary-care led model of care and forming a new way of working together based on ten communities, one system; an approach we have been developing over the past two years. All services are starting to work together in a more integrated way across health, social care, voluntary and community services (VCS), along with other stakeholders such as emergency services for each community.
These ten communities are being tailored to meet the needs of their specific population, recognising the wider determinants of health. We are also supporting a holistic care model taking into account a person’s individual needs: their physical health, their mental health and their social care needs. It is only through a proactive way of working, driven by the community’s health and care needs that we will improve outcomes for individuals as well as the wider populations we serve.
NHS England launched My NHS in September 2014, My NHS was set the task to gather data into one place so professionals and the public can easily compare the performance of health and care services over a range of measures. My NHS began to publish the CCG scorecard in 2016 and in August 2016 we launched MyCCG with the aim of providing clear and transparent information about what we are doing and how well we are doing.
In 2017, NHS England also introduced the CCG improvement and assessment framework which replaced the previous CCG Assurance Framework. The CCG improvement and assessment framework aligns with Department of Health’s NHS Mandate and with the triple aim set out within the NHS Five Year Forward View.
The CCG scorecard for 2018/19 has 58 indicators set out across four areas: better health, better care, sustainability and leadership. The indicators are selected from the NHS Constitution which includes important measures of performance and from national outcomes frameworks developed to assess longer term improvements in the health of our population.
Each quarter we produce an overview containing many of the indicators of the CCG scorecard, this enables people to see on one page how the CCG is progressing across important areas at a glance. Note: the most recent scorecards contain data from across the three NHS Bradford district and Craven CCGs.
