Several clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) worked with NHS England to develop the guidance (Stafford, Leicesterand Rutland, Gateshead and Salford) and discussions continue with them about the ongoing implementation of the guidance.

NHS England’s patient experience team has had discussions with Sutton CCG about implementation of the guidance as part of the Care Home Vanguard programme there.

The five CCGs which make up North Central London Strategic Collaborative Commissioning Group are proposing to have one CQUIN to ensure they are ‘commissioning excellent nutrition and hydration’ services. This will be used for all nine acute providers that cover Barnet, Camden, Islington, Haringey and Enfield. They are going to share their proposed outcome measures as soon as they have been agreed.
