CCG Annual Assessment 2016/17

NHS England has today published 2016/17 annual assessment ratings for all 209 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in England. The ratings provide a benchmark for CCGs, so they can compare themselves to others and assess where they need to focus. CCGs receive an overall rating, plus a separate assessment for cancer, mental health and dementia services.

The headline rating for NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group is ‘requires improvement’ which represents an improved position from 2015/16 when the rating was ‘inadequate’.

NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group has also been given a rating against the three clinical priority areas of cancer, mental health and dementia. The ratings are;

  • Cancer – Good
  • Mental Health – Good
  • Dementia – Requires improvement

NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group Chief Executive Alison Lee, said:

“The improvement in our annual assessment rating is a reflection of the proactive work of the CCG - member practices and staff - in taking a strong grip of our finances, activity and performance in order to improve outcomes for local people.”

“We still have much work to do and have a clear action plan in place to continue to improve the overall financial position and our rating for Dementia in particular.

“CCGs are operating within a challenging financial environment and we need to continue working closely with all of our stakeholders, particularly local people, to address these challenges”
