Neonatal Critical care Clinical Reference Group (CRG)CRGs consist of clinicians, commissioners, public health experts, patient and public voice representatives and professional associations which offer specific knowledge and expertise to advise NHS England and NHS Improvement on the best ways that specialised services should be provided.   Lead on the development of clinical commissioning policies, service specifications and quality standards.   Provide clinical advice on innovation, horizon scanning, service reviews and guide work to reduce variation and deliver increased value.   Ensure that any changes to the commissioning of specialised services focus on the needs of patients and the public with the support of their patient and public voice representatives.VariousEnglandNHSE Specialised CommissioningCommissioning products   SSQD
Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT)Support providers in delivering service improvements and efficiency improvements through identification of areas of unwarranted variation in clinical practice and/or divergence from the best evidence.  Each workstream culminates in a report and a set of national recommendations aimed at improving the quality of care and also reducing expenditure on complications, litigation, procurement and unproven treatment.  This work also supports the development of the Model Hospital which enables NHS hospital Trusts/Boards to compare areas of efficiency and productivity alongside their quality indicators and standards.  NHS Digital (many sources NHS data) Clevermed MBRRACE NNAP GIRFT QuestionnairesEnglandNHS England/Improvement Individual Trust & Network datapacks   National Reports: Combined RCPCH workforce snapshot Sept 2020; GIRFT National Neonatology Report; and GIRFT Neonatology Workforce Reports
