Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) were created following the Health and Social Care Act in 2012, and replaced Primary Care Trusts on 1 April 2013. They are clinically-led statutory NHS bodies responsible for the planning and commissioning of health care services for their local area.
The Comptroller and Auditor General has started a review of the administration costs of CCGs. This is intended to be a descriptive review setting out the facts. We expect to examine:
- What is the role of CCGs and how are they funded?
- What are CCGs spending on their administration?
- How are CCGs / NHS England looking to improve efficiency and control / reduce CCGs’ administration costs
