All Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) applications for wave two authorisation have been received, the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB) has confirmed.

All Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) applications for wave two authorisation have been received, the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB) has confirmed.

All 67 proposed CCGs aiming to become full statutory bodies in the second round of authorisation have submitted their applications in full, meaning the NHS CB’s authorisation process is “on track”.

“As we move towards April 2013 it is excellent news that the CCG authorisation process remains on track with all the proposed CCGs in wave two submitting their applications in full and on time,” said Dame Barbara Hakin, National Director of Commissioning Development at the NHS CB.

“Once again I would like to thank the CCGs and their member practices for their time and commitment as they prepare to take on their responsibilities as safe and effective commissioning organisations.”

The authorisation decisions of those CCGs in wave two are expected to be published by the NHS CB in December 2012.

CCGs in waves three and four are due to submit their authorisation applications in October and November respectively.

The NHS CB has reiterated that all four authorisation waves are viewed upon as “equal” with no difference between CCGs in wave one or wave four in terms of their perceived competence.

Do you think the NHS CB will reach its goal in determining authorisation outcomes for all 212 CCGs by April 2013?
