CSCF public hospitals
Under the Hospital and Health Boards Act 2011, a service agreement is in place between the Department of Health and each Hospital and Health Service (HHS) for the provision of public health services.
The HHS service agreements state:
- At Section 11, Cessation of Service delivery, requires HHSs to notify the Department about the proposed Termination or Suspension of a health Service.
- In Schedule 1, Section 3, Clinical Services Capability Framework, HHSs must ensure that:
- All facilities have undertaken a baseline self-assessment against the Clinical Services Capability Framework version 3.2 (CSCF).
- The Department is notified when a change to the CSCF baseline self-assessment occurs through the established public hospital CSCF notification process.
- In the event that a CSCF module is updated or a new module is introduced, a self-assessment is undertaken against the relevant module and submitted to the Department.
HHSs must notify the Department of a change to the CSCF, regardless of the length of time the change will be in place. It is imperative this change is communicated to the Department well in advance of it being implemented. The Public hospital CSCF notification process (PDF 440 kB) outlines in further detail the notification process. Templates for notifying the Department are found below:
