Lessons from the first wave of authorisation

The NHSCB has published profiles and case studies of CCGs who were authorised during the first wave.

Primary Care Commissioning published a recommendation by Dr Sarah Baker of Warrington CCG for those still going through the process, to study documentation published by authorised CCGs.

The PCC also reported that Somerset CCG had placed a lot of emphasis on links with partners, according to the group’s chair, Dr David Rooke: ‘Ensure that you are making the most of the links with the health and wellbeing board and (its) strategy. Develop your CCG’s view of how it can work with the local area team and the NHS CB.

This article was edited on 10 January. We previously called the PCC a Government body; this has now been corrected.

  • Thank you for mentioning Primary Care Commissioning (PCC) and the report from first wave CCGs that appeared on our website:.

    PCC is not and never has been a “government body”, a quango or an arm’s length body. PCC is an independent social enterprise providing information and other services to NHS organisations to support the development of primary care.

    We do not speak for the Department of Health or the NHS Commissioning Board.
