Warwickshire’s three Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will report on their 2015/16 Quality Premiums. The Quality Premium is intended to reward CCGs for improvements in the quality of the services they commission and for associated improvements in health outcomes and reducing inequalities. The premium is based on measures that cover a combination of national and local priorities.
