Closed petition Stop all NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups’ mergers.

99 NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, that decide on NHS services, are set to merge.

More will follow -  NHS England wants only one per Integrated Care System. These non-statutory partnerships are cutting hospital services, driving patients to rely on under-resourced “care closer to home”.

More details

Integrated Care Systems have no legal power to make these unpopular moves.

Clinical Commissioning Group mergers are a way round this problem.

One in each Integrated Care System could take legal responsibility for the “partnership’s” decisions - while overriding local objections to the loss of services.
 
We demand a halt to the reduction in CCGs and a full public consultation on each merger proposal.
