One of the real benefits that CCGs bring to commissioning is their ability to harness a greater breadth and depth of clinical and lay engagement. This places CCGs in a much stronger position to commission services, care and support that meet the needs of the local population.
Individuals who work within NHS Calderdale CCG’s member practices bring a wide range of specialist expertise, are interested in developing services in particular specialist areas and/or are keen to develop their commissioning skills. The CCG has introduced the role of an ‘Associate’ in order to provide opportunities for these individuals to play a key part in supporting the CCG’s commissioning priorities.
