Care Quality Commission considering transferring control of its Clinical Commissioning Group to Cornwall Council

AND

“On the same day as the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust has been placed in special measures, the CQC has also highlighted problems with the wider health and social care system in Cornwall.

It said too many patients were stuck in hospital waiting for the support they needed to live at home, or be placed in residential care, and managers had lost sight of the needs of people using services.

Its review calls for “urgent and significant change to improve” to ensure people move through the system more effectively.

NHS England said it was considering transferring the management of the county’s Clinical Commissioning Group to the council. A director of adult social services and health integration could also be appointed.”

  1. I am confused.

    When I asked NHS England if they were responsible for the behaviour of our CCG, they said “nothing to do with us guv'”.

    But here they seem to be able to transfer responsibility – which suggests that they are ultimately responsible for CCGs at the moment.

    Confused I am.
