The organisation that plans and buys healthcare for more than 170,000 people in north Norfolk and rural Broadland has been judged 'good' in a new annual ratings system.
For 2016/17 onwards, NHS England has introduced a new approach to ratings for the country's 211 clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).
In addition to its overall 'good' rating, North Norfolk Clinical Commissionsing Group (NNCCG) was rated 'good' in four of five headline assessment categories: leadership, planning, delegated functions and finance. However, it received a 'requires improvement' rating for performance - relating to waiting times at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
Along with neighbouring CCGs, NHS England and NHS Improvement, NNCCG has been working closely with the hospital to reduce waiting times.
CCG chairman and a Stalham GP Dr Anoop Dhesi said: 'At an extremely challenging time for the NHS, these ratings are a welcome acknowledgment that we are providing a good service to our local population and meeting the high standards expected of us.
