Day 59: Mental Health Quality Review

Today was the planned 2013/14 Quarter 2 (Jul-Sep 2013) Quality Review for our Mental Health provider.  This is a process by which we review the performance of mental health services against the quality requirements within the contract.

The review was chaired by the Director of Quality & Nursing for our neighbouring CCG, as they hold the contract on our behalf and are ‘lead commissioner’.  Prior to the review the provider had sent a quality report detailing performance against what is required in the contract.  We had an internal pre-meet as commissioners and had requested further information in some areas before today's review.
