Quality Assurance Strategy 2018-21

Updated on 28 June 2018

In our work to secure continuous improvement, safety and quality within the services it commissions, we have launched our latest Quality Assurance Strategy 2018-21

Building on the recommendations of reports by Robert Francis Q.C., Sir Bruce Keogh, Professor Don Berwick and others, the strategy defines the CCG’s vision for quality and safety.

Michelle Carrington, Chief Nurse and the Executive Director of Quality of Nursing at NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group said: “In line with our organisational values and the NHS Constitution, the strategy outlines the CCG’s work to identify and measure the quality of the services it commissions. 

“Quality is everyone’s business and we will be working with our health and care system partners achieve the best possible outcomes for patients, their families and carers.”

The CCG is a statutory organisation that leads on work to ensure local people are safe and cared for when they use health and care services and it is required to commission the best possible services and positive outcomes for patients, within the financial resources available locally.

Throughout our work to develop services and gain assurance we are committed to openness and transparency and we will continue to seek out the impact local services have on patients by collecting their opinions and experiences.
