CCGs are stifled by bureaucracy

Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) look increasingly more hamstrung by bureaucracy and national edict than PCTs, according to a CCG chairman.

Writing exclusively and in a personal capacity for for GPonline.com, Devon GP Dr David Jenner said: ‘They (CCGs) look like being given accountability without authority to make the necessary changes without consulting with a cast of thousands (unless of course like 111 it is central edict when you must just do it or have it done for you).

‘So why don’t we look at becoming sub-committees of the NHS Commissioning Board (NCB) at local level with the accountability remaining with the NCB and aligned to the authority it holds over CCGs anyway?’
