CCG ‘needs to im­prove’

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

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.”
