Clinical Commissioning Group Authorisation: Guide for Applicants (NHS Commissioning Board)


This draft guide assists emerging Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) develop their plans to navigate the authorisation process and become authorised CCGs. It gives a detailed description of the criteria, thresholds and evidence for authorisation and clarifies the three phases of authorisation: pre-application, application and Board Authority-led assessment.

The timetable for applications (there are four waves) is outlined and possible outcomes explained. The possible outcomes are:

  • Fully authorised.
  • Authorised with conditions.
  • Established but not authorised (shadow CCG).
