Proposals to amend current legislation to remove administrative burdens on clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and NHS England.
The Department of Health is proposing to use a Legislative Reform Order (LRO) to amend the NHS Act 2006 to:
- enable 2 or more CCGs to form a joint committee when carrying out their functions
- enable CCGs and NHS England to jointly exercise CCG functions and form a joint committee when doing so
The draft Order has been laid in parliament and is going through parliamentary procedures for approval.
