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.
