The Framework applies to all NHS trusts and foundation trusts.
The Single Oversight Framework is designed to help NHS providers attain, and maintain, Care Quality Commission ratings of ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’. The Framework doesn't give a performance assessment in its own right.
The framework applies from 1 October 2016, replacing the Monitor 'Risk Assessment Framework' and the NHS Trust Development Authority 'Accountability Framework'.
