Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN)

CQUIN stands for Commissioning for Quality and Innovation. This is a system introduced in 2009 to make a proportion of healthcare providers’ income conditional on demonstrating improvements in quality and innovation in specified areas of care.

This means that a proportion of our income depends on achieving quality improvement and innovation goals, agreed between the Trust and its commissioners.
