How we are doing

Working closely with NHS England, Northumberland CCG has developed an Assurance Framework to monitor performance, securing quality today and transforming services for the future. The framework ensures that Northumberland patients benefit from quality care, improved health outcomes and assesses the organisation’s performance on a local level and as part of the national standards.

The framework, published in May 2013, provides NHS England’s outline proposal and interim arrangements for the assurance framework that will be further developed in collaboration with CCGs and other key stakeholders.
