Quarterly Review Process and Balance Scorecard (BSC)
Quarterly checkpoints form a key part of the annual assessment. On a quarterly basis, the relevant NHS England Area Team meets with its local CCGs to review their effectiveness in discharging their statutory responsibilities. This includes reviewing the CCG’s delivery against plans, the performance of commissioned healthcare providers, progress in addressing remaining authorisation conditions and discussion of local strategic issues. These are available under Related pages.
Publication of Financial Sanctions applied by Commissioners
NHS Commissioners are requested to publish details of the financial fines and penalties imposed on providers for not achieving national standards of performance.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG will report individually on sanctions (fines and penalties) for all our contracts, whether we are the co-ordinating commissioner or not. Values are only reported where the sanction in respect of a particular standard at the relevant provider exceeds £1,000 in the reporting period. Where a sanction is applied only annually, the position will only be reported annually.
