Self Certification for NHS Trusts

Although NHS trusts are exempt from needing the provider licence, directions from the Secretary of State require NHS Improvement to ensure that NHS trusts comply with conditions equivalent to the licence as it deems appropriate.

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 must self-certify under these licence provisions. NHS trusts are required to self-certify that they can meet the obligations set out in the NHS provider licence (which itself 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) and that they have complied with governance requirements. The self certification requirement set out in CoS7(3) does not apply to NHS trusts.

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