Within the English NHS, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) were designed to increase clinical involvement in commissioning – it was thought that GPs’ knowledge of patients’ needs and local health systems would drive more patient-focused commissioning built around local needs. This new report asks if greater involvement has worked and if so, what specifically has worked? It could be argued that there is a fair amount of variation across CCGs in terms of clinical engagement so this report asks some pertinent questions.
