Commissioning outcomes framework – engagement document

The NHS Commissioning Board is engaging with Clinical Commissioning Groups, patient and professional organisations to develop emerging proposals for the Commissioning Outcomes Framework. This document sets out the background to the Commissioning Outcomes Framework and the proposed approach for how it will work.

Download Engagement document

The NHS Outcomes Framework sets out national outcomes goals. The Board will translate these into outcomes and indicators that are meaningful at local level in the Commissioning Outcomes Framework. The Board will use the Commissioning Outcomes Framework to drive local improvements in quality and outcomes for patients, to hold clinical commissioning groups to account and so that there is clear, publicly available information on the quality of healthcare services commissioned by commissioning groups and progress in reducing health inequalities. 

Any ideas for developing the Framework may be emailed to cof@nhs.net
