The King’s Fund published their report on a CCG scorecard, Measuring the Performance of Local Health Systems

(http://www.kingsfund.org.uk/publications/articles/measuring-performance-local-health-systems), on 12 October. The King’s Fund recommends that the scorecard should comprise a small number of headline indicators targeted at the public; a broader set of indicators on performance in delivering national priorities; and a wide set of indicators for local health systems to use for improvement.

The Department will publish further details of how it will work with NHS England to implement the scorecard in due course.
