Telford & Wrekin CCG and Shropshire CCG agree that merger will be ‘beneficial’
In a letter seen by Telford Live to stakeholders of the CCGs, a formal report for the proposal will be presented on 7th & 14th of May requesting that they agree to dissolve the two separate organisations and create a new one.
Shropshire CCG is currently repaying over £50m in legacy debt. Telford & Wrekin CCG balances its books.
Redundancies cannot be ruled out as the new CCG will seek to make 20% savings on de-duplication of services and some organisational changes.
NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) are responsible for the planning and commissioning of health and care services from a range of providers for the people. It also has a duty to monitor these services to ensure they provide a high level of care and are value for money. It is a clinically led organisation.
Do you think Telford could lose out in this new proposal?
