HAVE YOUR SAY: Consultation on proposed merger of four Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Groups

The four Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are seeking the views of local patients and organisations on proposals to merge into a single organisation. The aim is to strengthen how CCG staff work efficiently together, to commission services which are equally available to all residents across the county and to make the best use of the money available to the local NHS.

The four CCGs have been working closely together constructively for the last two years and it now feels the right moment to bring the four CCGs together formally as a final step in the development of the single management team. The CCG Governing Bodies (GBs) are also seeking a formal mandate from Derbyshire GP practices to merge, in tandem with developing a local “Place” based model of commissioning in line with the vision of the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) plan for Derbyshire.

We would like make you aware there are two public meetings scheduled to discuss the proposal, as detailed below:

Thursday, 9 August
5.30pm – 6.30pm
St. Peter’s in the City - Function Room
