There are regular discussions between the Crown Prosecution Service and the Ministry of Justice, particularly Her Majesty's Courts Service, on performance issues, including reducing the number of cases awaiting trial.

These include regular discussions at chief executive and chief operating officer level; at a local level between chief Crown prosecutors and resident judges; and between local operational managers. The Crown Prosecution Service and Her Majesty's Courts Service have also formed a Joint National Improvement Board with a focus on improving performance.
