NHS Improvement -
NHS Improvement have launched a consultation on a single oversight and improvement framework. The purpose of the framework is to identify where providers may benefit from improvement support across five areas: quality of care; finance and use of resources; operational performance; strategic change; and leadership and improvement capability. The framework is set to replace the legacy Risk Assessment Framework (used by Monitor to regulate Foundation Trusts) and the Accountability Framework used by the NHS Trust Development Authority. The deadline for responses is 4 August 2016.
