Transfer of commissioning responsibility for adult obesity services in 2016/17

NHS England is working through local collaborative commissioning forums to support the transfer of adult obesity services to clinical commissioning groups which began on 1 April 2016.

This includes leading on the contract negotiations for 2016/17 against the current service specification and access policy, with performance indicators. A collated stocktake on need, services and providers for local areas is available from local teams. NHS England, supported by the obesity surgery clinical reference group, has prepared guidance for CCGs, including a template service specification and best practice guidance for commissioning in 2017/18.
