NHS Chorley and South Ribble CCG and NHS Greater Preston CCG rated ‘Good’ under NHS England annual assessment published for 2019/20

Both NHS Chorley and South Ribble CCG and NHS Greater Preston CCG have been rated overall as ‘Good’ relating to performance in 2019-20.

Across England, all CCGs are given an ‘Ofsted’ style overall rating that places their performance in one of four categories: outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate.

Denis Gizzi, Chief Officer, NHS Chorley and South Ribble CCG and NHS Greater Preston CCG said:

“This annual assessment is recognition of the CCGs’ commitment to improving health and care for our communities amidst a particularly challenging year. For our organisations, wider partners and for the whole NHS, 2020 presented increased pressures as a result of the current coronavirus pandemic.

“We would like to extend our utmost gratitude to all our staff and partners for their continued support in these unprecedented times.”

Commenting on the annual assessment, Dr Lindsey Dickinson, Chair and Clinical Leader of NHS Chorley and South Ribble CCG, said:

“This rating is a positive reflection of the work which has taken place to ensure the delivery of safe and high-quality care to the people we serve, and a chance to reflect on the real impacts of our key partnership work with Primary Care Networks, the central Lancashire Integrated Care Partnership and the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System.

“The annual assessment rating of ‘Good’ in 2019/20 is a real achievement for our CCG and could not have been possible without the hard work, flexibility and continued dedication of our workforce.”

Dr Sumantra Mukerji, Chair and Clinical Leader of NHS Greater Preston CCG, said:

“We are committed to creating healthier communities and by working with our partners and combining resources we have demonstrated the difference that can be made.

“We know that there is still much work to do to improve care for our local residents and we look forward to 2021 to continue these efforts to ensure the services we arrange are safe, clinically and financially effective and of the highest possible quality.”
