NHS Clinical Commissioners respond to NHS Implementation Framework

The membership organisation for clinical commissioners, NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC), have responded positively to the new NHS Long Term Plan Implementation Framework.

The paper, which outlines a ten-year strategy of improvement for the health service, was released yesterday after a board meeting of NHS Improvement and NHS England.

Dr Graham Jackson, co-chair of NHSCC in England, said:

“We are pleased to have clarity on how clinical commissioners and others should now be planning to deliver the NHS long term plan.

“It is particularly helpful to see clearly which tasks should be prioritised - such as developing primary care networks - to provide a critical foundation for improving the health of the nation.

“There is a lot of work to do in a short time scale. Wide engagement is a fundamental part of designing robust plans that work for local populations so the September deadline - and for many Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) coinciding with their engagement activities on plans to merge - means it’s a significant challenge.

“We are working closely with NHS England and Improvement to support our members to deliver the priorities of the long term plan, including sharing learning with CCGs considering merging and setting out how clinical commissioning will evolve within systems.

“We hope this helps with systems in describing how they see the clinical commissioner landscape developing.”

A number of NHS trusts and CCGs have worked together to create the plan, which the NHS and the government hopes will make the health service sustainable for the future.
