02 / 6 / 2016 11.37am

NHS England has released further guidance to help NHS organisations work towards the health and wellbeing Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) payment framework. 

The CQUIN was announced in March 2016 and encourages improvements to staff health by offering a share of £450m to NHS organisations. To achieve the incentive, trusts are encouraged to take steps, such as introduce health and wellbeing initiatives, increase healthy food choices on premises and increase uptake of front line staff receiving the flu vaccine.

The guidance that has been published provides:

  • context about the need for focussing on health and wellbeing
  • more information about the content of the schemes
  • further information about the methods of processes behind the £450m incentive within the CQUIN
  • information on the support available during 2016/17 to help with the implementation of the CQUIN schemes.

We will provide support throughout the year, including an upcoming flu fighter CQUIN webinar and CQUIN guidance for finance directors and flu leadsRead the full guidance for further information and find out how your NHS organisation can be supported to become a healthy employer.

Visit our health and wellbeing and flu fighter webpages anytime for more resources to help you reach your targets.
