Co-commissioning expressions of interest

In May, Simon Stevens announced that CCGs could submit expressions of interest to develop co-commissioning arrangements for primary care services, giving CCGs the opportunity to expand their role and opt for greater involvement in commissioning decisions.

There has been a substantial response and applications spanning the three categories of interest have been received. Expressions of interest will now be assessed on criteria including quality, affordability, deliverability and risk.

The criteria and process for approving delegated budgets and commissioning responsibilities will be brought to the September 2014 board meeting for approval.

CCGs with approvals in principle for delegation will be subject to the allocations approval process and should receive delegated budgets from 1 April 2015.
