What does clinical commissioning mean for GPs and GP practices?

Clinical commissioning means clinicians using their knowledge and expertise to lead and improve the commissioning process. Clinicians will work with the support of managers, some of them directly employed by CCGs and others working in commissioning support organisations. Some GPs will have formal leadership roles as part of the CCG’s governing body and will bring together the views of member GP practices in the commissioning plans of the CCG.

CCGs will be locally driven, identifying their own leaders — both those who will have a place on any decision-making body and those who will run the organisation on a day-to-day basis.
