NHS Provider Licence Self-Certification

NHS foundation trusts are required to self-certify against a number of specific statements whether or not they have complied with the conditions of the NHS provider licence (which itself includes requirements to comply with the National Health Service Act 2006, the Health and Social Care Act 2008, the Health Act 2009, and the Health and Social Care Act 2012, and have regard to the NHS Constitution). The aim of self-certification is for providers to carry out assurance that they are in compliance with the conditions.

The Board of Directors has determined that sufficient assurance has been provided by the executive directors during 2016/17 to enable the Trust to confirm that the statements are an accurate reflection of the Trust’s position.

A copy of the Trust’s submission in relation to Licence Condition G6 is available below.

This requires NHS Trusts to have processes and systems that identify risks to compliance, and to take reasonable mitigating actions to prevent those risks and a failure to comply from occurring.
