Can CCGs curb emergency admissions?


CCGs can control emergency admissions to a significant extent - but only as part of a whole-system effort involving acute and community services, and social care. This being the case, while there may be occasions when individual practices should be financially incentivised, this should only be as part of a transparent, whole-system agreement.
