Our annual assessment result of Inadequate, which was announced by NHS England today, has been met with disappointment, however we are encouraged that NHS England has recognised the progress that our organisation has made in 2016-17.
The main reason for the result is the local financial deficit, an issue that the CCG is currently encouraging its system-wide partners to recognise and reduce.
Whilst doing this we will continue to engage local patients and the wider community during the summer; through our published series of roadshows and events, where we will take advice and gather the views on how to reduce the cost of our health and care system.
The improvement and assessment rating data is available on the NHS England website at https://www.england.nhs.uk/commissioning/ccg-assess/
