CCGs consider next steps following vote on Single Strategic Commissioning Organisation

The Governing Bodies of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Clinical Commissioning Groups have today considered the outcome of the GP membership vote on the proposals to create a Single Strategic Commissioning Organisation and agreed that an application to merge the CCGs will NOT be made to NHS England.

This means that the Governing Bodies will continue to meet in common and make decisions that affect the whole 1.1million population collectively but will remain as separate legal entities. The executive team will continue to work across the six organisations and work to create further efficiencies by doing things once rather than six times where it makes sense to do so.

The voting process has been independently verified by the Local Medical Council and the results are:-

Dr Alison Bradley, Chair of North Staffordshire CCG chaired the meeting. She said: “This decision follows many discussions with the CCGs’ GP membership, who considered the very informative feedback received from patients and stakeholders that was gathered over the summer.

“The governing bodies will continue to work together with the GP membership to address the concerns which led to this decision.”
