Clinical Commissioning Groups


The Health & Social Care Act 2012 introduced wholesale changes to the way in which local health services are planned and commissioned.  GP practices have come together with others to form Clinical Commissioning Groups.  10 Clinical Commissioning Groups cover the North East of England.  This briefing outlines their key responsibilities, describes how they will be held to account for their activity, and provides examples of how community & voluntary groups can work with CCGs.
