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”.
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.
