Clinical reference groups: patient and carer member recruitment launched

The NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB) – soon to be renamed NHS England - has opened the application process for patient and carer members of its 74 clinical reference groups (CRGs) for 2013/14.

CRGs are responsible for providing the NHS CB with clinical advice regarding specialised services, and for promoting equity of access to high quality services for all patients, regardless of where they live.

This is an exciting time to join a CRG, as they take their place within the new commissioning structures of the NHS. The accompanying Guide to CRGs and Information Pack for Patients and Carers will provide you with more, detailed information about their work; where they sit within the NHS CB, and what it means to be a patient and carer member of a CRG.
