The Single Oversight Framework (SOF) is designed to help NHS providers attain, and maintain, Care Quality Commission ratings of ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’. The Framework doesn't give a performance assessment in its own right.
Trusts are given a SOF score from 1 to 4. What the SOF segment scores mean.
How it works
The Framework will help us identify NHS providers' potential support needs across five themes:
- quality of care
- finance and use of resources
- operational performance
- strategic change
- leadership and improvement capability
