The NHS Commissioning Board Authority has published Clinical commissioning group authorisation: Draft guide for assessors undertaking desk top review. It is an accompaniment to Clinical commissioning group authorisation: Draft guide for applicants and covers:
- the overarching principles, approach and methodology of the assessment process;
- the key stages of assessment, and the requisite outputs of each stage; and
- the published domain definitions, criteria and authorisation thresholds as set out in the applicants’ guide and how to assess CCG evidence submissions against them.
For more information on these guidance documents and other resources for clinical commissioning groups, please visit the NHS Commissioning Board website.
