CCGs and Effective Engagement

BMA GPC (Jan 2012)

At the centre of the Health and Social Care Bill are proposals to set up Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).

The timeline is tight, with the expectation that CCGs will be operating in full shadow mode by April 2012.  By April 2013, CCGs are to become statutory bodies.

These changes affect all GPs as CCGs will be accountable to their constituent practices, who will be responsible for the decisions the CCG takes on their behalf. Engagement with the local profession will therefore be central to the success of a CCG.

With the pace of change moving at startling speed, it is essential that CCGs are actively engaged with key stakeholders from the outset. This will form part of whether a CCG is deemed ready and authorised to hold commissioning responsibilities.
