NHS North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has once again been rated Good by NHS England.
This sustains the rating the CCG achieved last year, despite more rigorous assessment criteria and the multiple challenges that our local health and care system has experienced and responded to during the past year.
All CCGs are assessed each year against a number of indicators in the CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) and given a headline rating. The CCG was also rated good in 2016/17.
Rob Walsh, Joint Chief Executive, said, “We are delighted our focus on making improvements for local people continues to be recognised.
“The fact I’m welcoming this latest positive rating on behalf of the CCG demonstrates the genuine joint working between health and local authority in North East Lincolnshire, bringing together two organisations whose core business is the wellbeing of our local communities.
“During the IAF process we discussed our local areas of concerns with NHS England, particularly in reference this year to A&E and cancer, to understand what wider support is available.
“However, it is also our opportunity to showcase some of our areas of achievement during 2017/18. These include receiving a green star rating for how we engage with and involve our local communities, “outstanding” ratings for Diabetes and Dementia care and how we are innovatively commissioning new ways of working including developing a new cardiology service and a model for social prescribing, engaging with primary care to sustain services and address future workforce challenges and winning a national award for high tech wound care.”
CCG Chair Mark Webb added that achieving this rating once again had involved a great deal of commitment from everyone involved.
“I would like to thank everyone involved at the CCG and our partners for their hard work that has contributed towards achieving this rating,” said Mr Webb.
