PERFORMANCE: Barnet Clinical Commissioning Group is still being monitored by NHS England with conditions on its authorisation.

In the fifth review of CCG authorisations in May NHS England decided that Barnet CCG should remain only conditionally authorised, with two conditions and a legal direction related to planning.

Barnet CCG has struggled financially and had the highest planned deficit in the country for 2013-14, at £20.9m.

There are only three CCGs in the country that continue to have legal directions placed on them.
