STRUCTURE: NHS North Somerset Commissioning Group will continue to receive support from NHS England after failing to satisfy all the conditions on its authorisation.

The CCG is one of 59 out of 211 not yet to be fully authorised after a further 47 CCGs had conditions lifted following review by NHS England.

Two of the four remaining conditions all relate to the CCG’s lack of “clear and credible” plans to deliver quality, innovation, productivity and prevention savings. The other two relate to governance arrangements and the capacity to deliver all their duties and responsibilities.
