Outgoing clinical commissioning managers and clinical leads are invited to reflect on the past decade in a survey from Healthcare Leader.
The five-minute survey asks about the benefits and challenges of clinical commissioning and what it was able to achieve during that time.
It also aims to capture where and whether CCG clinical leaders will continue to work in the Integrated Care System architecture.
The findings will form part of a report to reflect on the past and inform the future in terms of primary care clinical leadership.
Healthcare Leader editor, Victoria Vaughan, said: ‘We hope the out-going CCG leaders, who have dedicated a significant amount of time to improving the care of their patients through clinical commissioning, will take part in this survey to help inform and support future clinical leaders.’
CCGs came into being in 2013 following the controversial reforms in the 2012 Health and Care Act. Then, the 211 CCGs were set up empower clinical decision-making by putting GPs at the head of CCGs and by bringing the GP, making the prescribing and referral decisions, closer to the costs and budget involved.
CCGs are set to come to an end on July 1 2022 as ICSs become established statutory organisations.
