STRUCTURE: North and West Reading clinical commissioning group has been authorised with 14 conditions, more than any other CCG in the first wave of authorisation.

Three of the conditions were designated for level three support, the highest level used by the board in this wave. Two of those were around the CCG’s system of internal controls to ensure strategic oversight, including clinical risk management and patient safety. The third was around the skills of the governing body.

Lower level concerns were identified regarding the CCG’s plans for service transformation and identifying “constituent communities and groups” within the population served by the CCG.
