This request was for the information provided to Monitor by any of the 32 clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in London as to whether they had already re-designated services provided by NHS foundation trusts as commissioner requested services (CRS), in accordance with the provisions of Monitor’s provider licence.

This information relates to the ‘grandfathering period’ during which NHS foundation trust services are automatically designated, which for most trusts comes to an end on 1st April 2016 – if services are to be CRS after that date, they must be re-designated by the commissioner.

The information held by Monitor has been disclosed. The request also asked for the same information provided to Monitor by NHS England, as it related to foundation trusts in London, but this has been withheld on the basis that it is to be published in future by NHS England and London CCGs.
