Updates to the Well-led framework

The characteristics of a well-led organisation, as defined by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), Monitor and the NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA) are now identical. This aligned view of a well-led organisation is reflected in CQC’s assessments and ratings, as set out in its provider handbooks, while Monitor and TDA now use the updated well-led framework as the point of reference for NHS trusts and foundation trusts.

It replaces the quality governance framework (QGF) and the board governance assurance framework (BGAF), which are now effectively incorporated within the framework.
