Sixty-seven more CCGs authorised

The NHS Commissioning Board has authorised 67 further clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to commission healthcare services for their communities.

The first 34 CCGs were authorised in December 2012.

A total of 211 CCGs will be responsible for £65bn of the £95bn NHS commissioning budget from 1 April 2013. The remaining 110 CCGs are set for authorisation over the next two months.

The second wave of CCGs, which have all completed a rigorous five-month assessment, will in total plan and commission hospital, community health and mental health services on behalf of more than 18 million people. The 34 CCGs authorised last month will serve a total of around 10 million people.
