Commissioning for Quality and Innovation

CQUIN stands for Commissioning for Quality and Innovation. This is a system introduced in 2009 to make a proportion of healthcare providers’ income conditional on demonstrating improvements in quality and innovation in specified areas of care.

This means that a proportion of our income depends on achieving quality improvement and innovation goals, agreed between the Trust and its commissioners.

The sum attached to the CQUINs is variable each year based on a percentage of the contract value and depends on achieving quality improvement and goals.
