Public Accounts Committee Chair Meg Hillier MP has commented on today’s National Audit Office report, examining the role and costs of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).
The Committee Chair, Meg Hillier MP, comments:
"We should be concerned that too many CCGs are failing to function effectively and that increasing numbers are overspending against their budgets.
"Like previous changes to NHS commissioning, CCGs are going through more change and the NHS is crying out for stability.
"It is vital that further restructuring supports the 10-year plan and isn’t an unnecessary distraction to addressing the real challenges in the health service."
