Nhs England Delegation Agreement

By Mark, December 13, 2020

In addition, in the performance of their delegated duties, NHS England and the GCs must fulfil a number of legal obligations as defined in the delegation agreement, including Section 13E (obligation to improve the quality of services), 13G (obligation to reduce inequality) and 13Q (public participation and consultation by the board) of the NHS Act 2006 (in its amended version). To confirm, we do not require GCs to submit an additional plan outsizing how these tasks are accomplished with respect to the commissioning of primary procurement. NHS England does not intend to require the GCCs to assume additional management functions or responsibilities in relation to the tasks defined in the delegation agreement, without any prior agreement being reached. The delegation agreement sets out the conditions for the performance of primary procurement functions in the GCCs. We have received a number of CCG requests regarding the delegation agreement, and these are listed below. If you have any further questions, please email england.co-commissioning@nhs.net. A formal delegation agreement has been adopted by NHS England to allow NHS Nottingham City CCG to order primary medical care for the inhabitants of Nottingham City. We received a number of questions regarding the following provision in the delegation agreement (sections 13.26 to 13.33): the delegation agreement merely confirms this usual position (i.e. that funds received by a legal body must fulfil all commitments for its tasks). In addition, NHS England has introduced a provision allowing the CGC to notify NHS England if it believes that delegated appropriations are not sufficient to cover potential losses and perform delegated functions and that the parties meet to agree on possible adjustments. Similarly, this agreement process is followed if there are cases where NHS England has withheld funds or provisions or contributed to the loss.

No mutual compensation has been incurred, as NHS England retains legal responsibility for the performance of delegated duties under the NHS Act. This means that any liability and loss regarding NHS England`s delegated functions will be maintained. Given this legal situation, it is highly unlikely that the CGC will actually suffer any losses. The delegation agreement defines a number of limited circumstances in which the GSPs are responsible for losses incurred (for example. B if the CGC has improperly, fraudulently or deliberately ignored the terms of the agreement). The CGC is only responsible for managing receivables if they involve delegated functions.
