The Prescribed Specialised Services Advisory Group (PSSAG) provides recommendations to ministers on which health services should be considered to be specialised and be nationally commissioned by NHS England, rather than locally commissioned by clinical commissioning groups. This report sets out the proposals considered by PSSAG at its May and October 2015 meetings, and outlines the Group’s recommendations for each of these proposals.
Monitor requires all NHS foundation trusts to produce reports on the quality of care as part of their annual reports. Quality reports help trusts to improve public accountability for the quality of care they provide. This document collates the findings of external auditors' assurance of foundation trusts' quality reports. It also allows foundation trusts to compare their performance and issues against the sector’s aggregate results. The findings may also be of interest to NHS trusts, although their data was not part of the assurance work.
