Report and response published

Scope of the inquiry

Following the Committee’s investigation into NHS continuing healthcare funding in January 2018, funding pressures on CCGs have been an ongoing concern. On 9 January, the Committee will question senior officials at the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England about why so many CCGs are failing to function effectively and increasing numbers are overspending against their budgets. The Committee will also consider the current and future role of CCGs, examining how local health service needs will be protected.
