Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) Scheme

The CQUIN scheme is intended to deliver clinical quality improvements and drive transformational change. These will impact on reducing inequalities in access to services, the experiences of using them and the outcomes achieved.

For 2017/19 the national CQUIN scheme will be followed.

  4. Timely identification and treatment for sepsis in inpatient settings
  5. Improved compliance with CCG clinical threshold documents and procedures of limited clinical value guidance for consultant to consultant and other internally generated demand
  6. Increased usage of decision aids in secondary and community care.

Gender Pay Gap at the Trust and Harrogate Integrated Facilities (wholly owned subsidiary)

In accordance with the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017, employers with 250 or more employees are required to publish information on the pay gap between male and female employees as at 31 March each year.  This information must be published on the employer’s website (and must remain on the website for a minimum of three years) to be accessible to both employees and the public.

The gender pay gap is different to equal pay.  Equal pay means that men and women in the same employment who are performing equal work must receive equal pay, as set out in the Equality Act 2010.  It is unlawful to pay people unequally because they are a man or a woman.
