Who are the Commissioners?

Following the publication of the White Paper in July 2010 and planned system

reform, the Department of Health concluded that it would not be possible to retain

effective management capacity in all PCTs until their abolition in 2013 and that this

would present unacceptable risks to quality and financial management.

Therefore, in 2011, PCTs consolidated their

management capacity, with single executive

teams each managing a cluster of PCTs. Individual

PCTs remain as statutory organisations and whilst

the clusters are not statutory bodies or permanent

features of the landscape, they are necessary to

sustain PCT capability and enable the creation of

the new system.


From April 2013, assuming the passage of the

Health & Social Care Bill proceeds through

Parliament as planned, commissioning will be

carried out by CCGs. There are currently 71

emerging CCGs across the region, although

it is likely that the final number will be slightly

reduced from this.
