Exclusive: Less than a dozen CCGs 'very difficult to operate'

GPC chairman Dr Laurence Buckman believes less than a dozen clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) face operating difficulties.

Watch this video to find out Dr Buckman's thoughts on the difficulties facing problem CCGs, the future of commissioning and how relationships with local government are progressing.

The NHS Commissioning Board is expected to reveal the results of its first wave of CCG authorisations on Tuesday.

Dr Buckman was speaking at a commissioning roundtable chaired by RCGP chairwoman Professor Clare Gerada at the RCGP's new central London headquarters on Tuesday.

Watch this video to discover Professor Gerada's thoughts on the future of commissioning, whether it is a 'minority sport', 'peloton' leadership and how the RCGP is changing.

Another video highlight from the two-hour debate will be published on GPonline.com tomorrow.

A full report from the roundtable will appear in the next issue of GP dated 7 January.
