Our strategic priorities

Harrogate and Rural District CCG has five Strategic Priorities, which guide all of our work.

Quality, Safety and Continuous Improvement: To ensure that the care we commission is of high quality/safe and sustainable, improves health outcomes and wellbeing and provides a good patient experience.

Better Value HealthcareTo meet the economic challenges and changes in the NHS by commissioning efficient and cost effective services and better value healthcare.

Well Governed and Adaptable OrganisationTo be a well governed organisation with high standards of assurance, responsive to members and stakeholders in transforming services using innovative approaches to meet the future healthcare needs of our population.

Health and WellbeingTo shift the emphasis towards optimising opportunities for maintaining health and wellbeing, promoting patient responsibility to choose well, accessing the right services at the right time and in the most appropriate place, and empowering patients to be better able to self-manage their own long term conditions.

Active and Meaningful EngagementTo work in close partnership with local people as well as all organisations that commission or provide care for our population to embed meaningful engagement into the CCGs decision making processes.
