CCG Assurance Report

​​​​​​​​​Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) were established on 1 April 2013 and are clinically-led organisations at the heart of the NHS system. NHS England has a statutory duty (under the Health and Social Care Act (2012)) to conduct an annual assessment of every CCG.

In 2016/17 NHS England introduced a new CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework to replace both the existing CCG assurance framework and CCG performance dashboard. This in turn was superseded in 2019/20 by the NHS Oversight Framework


The NHS Oversight Framework for 2019/20 has replaced the provider Single Oversight Framework and the clinical commissioning group (CCG) Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF), and will inform assessment of providers and CCG’s in 2019/20.


It is intended as a focal point for joint work, support and dialogue between NHS England and NHSImprovement, CCGs, providers and sustainability and transformation partnerships, and integrated care systems.
