CQUIN Programme

CQUIN stands for Commissioning for Quality and Innovation. This is a payment framework introduced in 2009 to enable our commissioners to reward excellence, by linking a proportion of our income to the achievement of agreed quality improvement goals.

In 2018/19 we agreed to deliver the following CQUINs:

  • Multi-disciplinary inreach team for the Bristol Dementia Wellbeing Service (Bristol CCG)
  • NHS Staff health and wellbeing
  • Improving physical healthcare to reduce premature mortality in people with severe mental illness (PSMI)

  • Repatriation and reducing the length of stay in specialist mental health services (low secure ) (NHS England / Secure Services)
  • Repatriation and reducing the length of stay in specialist mental health services (medium secure) (NHS England / Secure Services)
  • Preventing ill health by risky nehaviours (alcohol and tobacco)
  • Transitions out of children and young people's mental health services
