CCGs: a call to action


Jonathan's right. When I took on a PEC Chair role at the inception of PCTs I got myself onto a management course / learning set with a mix of clinicians and managers of every flavour. It was invaluable to me as it helped me see health from their perspectives too. Combined with some basic management skills training (effective meeting management, negotiating & influencing skills, etc) we could see competent & sensitive clinical leaders. It grieves me to see CCGs revisiting so much of the learning we did years ago in PCT-land.
