CCG receives highest rating for patient and community engagement

CCG receives highest rating for patient and community engagement
25 July 2019

Under the National Health Service Act 2006 (as amended by the Health and Social Care Act 2012), CCGs have a statutory duty to involve the public in commissioning (section 14Z2). In addition to meeting statutory responsibilities, effective patient and public participation helps CCGs to commission services that meet the needs of local communities and tackle health inequalities.

Following the national 2018/19 CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) Patient and Community Engagement Indicator assessment, the Accountable Officer of each CCG receives formal confirmation the final Red Amber Green Green Star* rating and score for their CCG.

Barnsley CCG received a Green Star, the highest level rating available, this year scoring 14 out of a possible 15 points.

The overall IAF results are available on MyNHS
