NNE mentioned in HSJ – Positive Peer Pressure
CCGs have made a good start to ensuring quality care. For small organisations this process of quality assurance can feel daunting – especially in the wake of the Francis report which has focused attention on failings in healthcare and how they can be detected and prevented. Commissioners are inevitably part of this wider picture.
CCGs are keen to learn from each other in all areas of quality assurance. EMIAS is offering a benchmarking service so CCGs can see how they compare with their peers on key aspects of quality assurance.
Chief Officer of Nottingham North and East CCG Sam Walters says the benchmarking is incredibly useful and sharing best practice offers added value.
