Board Assurance Prompt – using audit for better commissioner assurance

May 2014

This resource for governing bodies and boards focuses on the ways in which provider audit activity, both internal and clinical, can contribute to a framework of better quality assurance by healthcare commissioners. 

The BAP forms part of the resource package produced through the commissioning for quality programme by GGI and NHS South London CSU. This briefing is targeted primarily at governing bodies in CCGs, and aims to provide insight into the quality of care services being commissioned. This BAP is also relevant to Health and Wellbeing Boards, HealthWatch, the Boards of NHS providers and patient advocate organisations.
