NHS Tameside and Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has received an ‘Outstanding’ rating for the second year running.
The CCG is a clinically-led organisation responsible for planning and funding the majority of health services for people living in Tameside and Glossop.
NHS England and NHS Improvement (North West) have a legal requirement to undertake an annual assessment of CCG performance against the indicators in the NHS Oversight Framework.
The framework is as a focal point for joint work, support and dialogue between NHS England, NHS Improvement, CCGs, providers and sustainability and transformation partnerships and integrated care systems.
Key areas of strength and areas of good practice where the CCG’s performance is in the best quartile in England are for:
- Diabetes patients that have achieved all the NICE recommended treatment targets: three (HbA1c, cholesterol and blood pressure) for adults and one (HbA1c) for children
- Provision of high quality care: primary medical services
- People with urgent GP referral having first definitive treatment for cancer within 62 days of referral
- Improving Access to Psychological Therapies: recovery
- Estimated diagnosis rate for people with dementia
- Percentage of patients waiting 6 weeks or more for a diagnostic test
- Utilisation of the NHS e-referral service to enable choice at first routine elective referral
The CCG was also rated the highest ‘Green’ in their End of Year final finance and Green Star’ in their End of Year final Quality of Leadership.
Dr Asad Ali, Co-Chair for NHS Tameside and Glossop CCG, said: “This is fantastic news, and I would like to thank the entire CCG team who have continued to demonstrate excellence. The attainment of this annual rating has and will continue to have a positive impact upon health and social care outcomes for Tameside and Glossop residents.”
