The new clinical commissioning group (CCG) assurance framework for 2015/16 has been published.

The new framework describes the assurance process that supports CCGs to commission safe, high quality and cost effective services for patients. It includes a strengthened focus on a CCG’s performance in delivering improvements for patients, as well as assessment of its capability to deliver core and additional delegated responsibilities.

The framework will be underpinned by additional documents that will be published later in the spring following further detailed engagement with stakeholders. These will include:

• A more detailed operational guidance for CCGs.

• A CCG scorecard.

• Technical guidance on the metrics used in the scorecard.
