PERFORMANCE: Croydon 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 Croydon CCG should remain only conditionally authorised, with two conditions and a legal direction related to planning.

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

Croydon CCG had the second highest planned deficit for 2013-14, at £19.9m.
