Clinical Commissioning Groups — Ability to Carry Out Commissioning Jointly With Other Clinical Commissioning Groups and NHS England — 9 Sep 2014 at 16:36
The majority of MPs voted for Clinical Commissioning Groups to be able to carry out their commissioning functions jointly with other Clinical Commissioning Groups and NHS England.
The majority of MPs voted to enable two or more Clinical Commissioning Groups to form joint committees and for NHS England to be able to form a joint committee with a Clinical Commissioning Group.
The explanatory document associated with the order approved via this vote stated:
- The Department of Health and NHS England have been made aware of the practical challenges that CCGs are experiencing in being unable to form joint committees to make decisions in relation to issues that cut across boundaries such as continuing healthcare and service provision and design, or reconfiguration of local NHS services. Joint commissioning is likely to play a more and more prominent role in the delivery of health services.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That the draft Legislative Reform (Clinical Commissioning Groups) order 2014, which was laid before this House on 13 March 2014, in the last Session of Parliament, be approved.
-  Explanatory Document to accompany draft Legislative Reform Order 2014 Amending the National Health Service Act 2006
