To assist Providers delivery against their contractual requirements a number of resources have been made available.
It has been recognised that to provide additional support to CCGs in terms of data validation and monthly reconciliations there are a number of key information/datasets that will be required to be included within Provider Contracts.
CCGs do not wish to burden our Provider colleagues with additional data requests that may be considered to have little or no use, and to that end the documents below seek to introduce the required datasets along with an explanation of what purpose the dataset will serve and how it will be used to the benefit of contract management.
