What's the future for CCGs?

A parliamentary report looks at changes to the structure of NHS commissioning organisations. It describes how the NHS long-term plan sets out the intention for integrated care systems to cover the whole of England by 2021, resulting in a reduction in the number of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).

It finds that many CCGs are currently underperforming, which the report concludes will need to improve as they take on the responsibility for commissioning services across larger populations. The report also concludes that getting the commissioning structures right will be an important part of delivering the NHS long-term plan.
