Accountability without power


As a secondary care doctor sitting on a CCG I have been both surprised and impressed at the way the 5 GP board members have set about their task. 4 of the 5 continue with most of their former GP sessions, the exception being the chair who admittedly has less time to function as a GP. At all meetings the clinicians present have a considerable say on issues and there is regular monthly dialogue with all GP's who have opportunity to vent their feelings on any issues which are fed back to the CCG. Indeed other GPs do sit on sub groups and provide meaningful input eg on quality issues. To date I have come across no major contentious issues.
