new guidance issued by NHSE&I on procedures for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to apply for constitution change, merger or dissolution

4 August 2020

NHSE&I issued new guidance to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) on 3 August 2020 and it can be accessed via the following link.

Clearly, this is a must read document for all CCGs either going through or contemplating embarking on a merger process. It has been updated to take account of key learning from the previous CCG mergers.

A fuller review will be published with our next Newsletter but prior to then feel free to contact either Gerard Hanratty or Charlotte Harpin on any questions you have over your CCG merger or constitution. Please also look out for the dates for the seminar series we are doing with NHS Clinical Commissioners and NHSE&I on CCG mergers.
