STRUCTURE: Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group has been risk rated green following an assurance visit.

The CCG covers the same area as that covered by NHS Somerset.

A report to the primary care trust board in December said: “Following the visit, NHS South of England has written to Somerset Primary Care Trust Cluster to confirm that the Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group has made significant progress on its journey towards authorisation, and has agreed that our risk rating is green for each of the areas under consideration.”
