​Joint Impact Assessment Panel (JIAP)

As part of our on-going improvement programme the CCG formalised the process for assessing all of our commissioning activities against the domains of patient and public engagement, quality, equality and privacy, by establishing JIAP. Please see the Terms of Reference.

JIAP brings together the leads in these areas to explore how commissioning activity will impact on patients and carers and ensuring that robust patient and stakeholder engagement is undertaken by all commissioners across the organisation. 

The overarching remit  of JIAP is to provide a reliable and consistent approach for assessing any future plans and projects against their potential impact on the quality of service and any impacts on patient experience.

Please see below for examples of the assessment criteria including an engagement plan and equality impact assessment for proposals around redesigning Diabetes services.
