This year’s annual commissioning plan is written in a year of transition, as the NHS is moving accountability for the commissioning of health services to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the National Commissioning Board by April 2013, subject to the Health Bill passing through the House of Lords. Local GPs and patients determined that they wished to continue to collaborate, as they had done for many years, in the locality of Rushcliffe and therefore this is the first plan of Rushcliffe CCG as a Clinical Commissioning Group as it works towards becoming a statutory body in 2013. Working towards achievement of financial balance and other authorisation milestones will be the focus in 2012/13.
To achieve financial balance Rushcliffe CCG have a sizeable Quality Innovation Productivity and Performance (QIPP) target, delivery of this is a focus of the commissioning intentions which are split across 6 areas:
Belvoir Health Group | Compton Acres Medical Centre | East Bridgford Medical Centre | East Leake Medical Group | Keyworth Health Centre | Ludlow Hill Surgery | Musters Medical Practice | Orchard Surgery | Radcliffe-on-Trent Health Centre | Soar Valley Surgeries | Southview Surgery | St Georges Medical Practice | The Gamston Medical Centre | The Ruddington Medical Centre | Trent Bridge Medical Practice | West Bridgford Medical Centre
