Sets out the approach we propose to take in overseeing providers using a Single Oversight Framework for NHS trusts and foundation trusts and the support we'll provide.

What's in the framework

The proposed framework sets out:

  • our main areas of focus in overseeing trusts
  • how we'll collect information from trusts
  • how we'll identify potential concerns with a trust’s performance
  • how we'll segment the trust sector according to the level of challenge each trust faces

The framework also sets out how we'll identify where trusts may benefit from, or require, support in the key areas of quality of care, finance and use of resources, operational performance, strategic change and leadership and improvement capability.

The consultation deadline was 5pm on 4 August 2016.
