Quality Strategy 2017-2021
Healthcare is changing rapidly, with new challenges from technology, demography and social attitudes influencing our commissioning. The development of our Sustainability Transformation Plan (STP), is specifically focused on the health and wellbeing, care and quality, finance and efficiency care gaps. This, along with the development of new models of care challenges our way of assuring and continually improving the quality of services that our patients experience.
The updated quality strategy maintains NHS Nene and Corby Clinical Commissioning Groups’ (CCGs’) ability to assure the quality of the services that we commission and that are provided to our patients, through focus on the effectiveness, safety and the experience of that care. Therefore we need to develop the culture and skills to ensure that continual quality improvement is central to all of our commissioning and the services of our providers. The framework within the strategy starts this process enabling staff across the CCGs to make this role central to their work.
The quality of the care that our patients receive defines the success of NHS Nene and Corby CCGs.
