Self Certification for NHS Trusts

Although NHS Trusts are exempted from needing a provider licence, directions from the Secretary of State requires NHS Improvement to ensure that NHS Trusts comply with the conditions equivalent to the licence as it deems appropriate. NHS Trusts are also required to confirm that they have complied with governance requirements.

The Single Oversight Framework (SOF) bases its oversight on the NHS provider licence. NHS trusts are therefore legally subject to the equivalent of certain provider licence conditions (including Condition G6 and Condition FT4) and are required to self-certify under these conditions which are set out in the NHS provider licence. The licence includes requirements to comply with the National Health Service Act 2006, the Health and Social Care Act 2008, the Health Act 2009 and the Health and Social Care Act 2012, and to have regard to the NHS Constitution.

Attached below is a copy of the Trust's signed self-certification following a review by our Board.
