NHS Providers submission to NHS England and Improvement's new system oversight framework 2021/22

We welcome the publication of NHS England and Improvement’s (NHSE/I) consultation on its new System Oversight Framework for 2021/22. Trusts are clear that there is need for greater alignment of oversight arrangements with the development of system working and are keen to engage with NHSE/I colleagues to constructively shape the practical implementation of these proposals now and over the coming year. Our response has been informed by engagement with NHS trusts and foundation trusts in England, including two roundtables attended by NHSE/I. We also include findings from our recently published regulation survey report, Reconsidering the approach to regulation, where relevant.
