NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire set to establish single strategic commissioning organisation

The six CCGs in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are set to merge next April in a move that will establish a single commissioning organisation for the local health system.

A letter to the CCGs from NHS England and NHS Improvement received this week provided formal approval for the current six local CCGs to dissolve in order to form a new strategic commissioner.

The new organisation, which will be established on 1 April 2020, will be called NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

Approval of the proposed merger is subject to a number of conditions including key senior appointments and formation & ratification of a written constitution. 

The six CCGs already share a joint executive team and board, under the leadership of Accountable Officer Amanda Sullivan. The roles of Clinical Chair as well as Accountable Officer for the new organisation will be appointed before the end of January 2020. 

Amanda Sullivan has served as Accountable Officer of all of the six CCGs in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire since 2018. Previously she was Accountable Officer for Newark and Sherwood and Mansfield and Ashfield CCG before taking on leadership of the other four CCGs in the region.

She said: “We are extremely pleased to receive approval of our merger bid, which will enable us to address key challenges in the health system. 

“The proposal was widely supported by a range of health system partners as well as local GPs, and will help us all focus on improving outcomes for our population.

“Having a single commissioner will also provide a more consistent approach to service planning, contracting and delivery.

“The new strategic commissioner will play a pivotal role in our system architecture as an ICS Accelerator site, which aims to deliver the best possible care for local people.”
