NHS Nene CCG has been rated as “good” following an annual assessment by NHS England.
Under NHS England's 'Improvement and Assessment' framework, and in line with the Five Year Forward View, all CCGs are evaluated and given a rating according to performance, delivery, outcomes, finance and leadership.
NHS Nene CCG'S key areas of strength and good practice were noted by NHS England as follows:
- Overall cancer performance
- Improvements in IAPT services are being made in referrals and initial contact
- Achievement of overall financial targets for 17/18
- Contribution to Northamptonshire's Sustainability and Transformation Partnership refresh
- Building a shared management team with Corby Clinical Commissioning Group
- The well led and managed move to a single accountable officer and single portfolios across the clinical and director teams
- Strengthened relationships with member practices
Carole Dehghani, NHS Nene CCG's interim Accountable Officer said: “We are pleased that the efforts and hard work put in by our CCG staff and local practices, as well as the support of our providers, partners and the local authority has been reflected in the “good” rating, and the performance of cancer and IAPT services have both been recognised as improved.
“However, we are not complacent and understand there is further work to be done over the upcoming year. The partnership working with Corby CCG has strengthened the work we are doing on behalf of our local population and has made us more efficient. We will look to develop this partnership so we can continue to ensure the best possible services are delivered to patients in Northamptonshire.“
