Clinical Commissioning Groups - to Authorisation and Beyond
The authorisation process is a significant first milestone for all Clinical Commissioning Groups on the journey to becoming a successful clinician led organisation. However, it isn’t the ‘end itself’; it is only the beginning of an exciting journey to transforming commissioning processes and collaborations to improve health outcomes for the local population.
We have been working with over 40 aspirant CCGs since 2010,
helping them to reach this first important milestone, and
to plan their development beyond authorisation. This booklet captures some of those stories to illustrate the range of external support that aspirant CCGs find helpful to extend their internal organisation and leadership capability.
All CCGs are using the 6 domains of authorisation as
their roadmap for development. We have used the
same roadmap to capture the stories.
