CCG ‘needs to improve’
The organisation which commissions health services in Peterborough has moved out of special measures after its latest inspection.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has had its rating changed from ‘inadequate’ to ‘requires improvement’ after being inspected by NHS England.
NHS England has given no reasons for the new rating, but the CCG said: “NHS England has recognised that we have progressed a great deal in the last year.”
Dr Gary Howsam, CCG clinical chair and chief clinical officer, said: “Our financial position continues to be very challenging and we need to continue to work together as an organisation to meet our control total deficit whilst maintaining safe and high quality services for our population.
“We will need to make some difficult decisions but I am confident that we can rise to the challenge.”
