Almost all CCGs are ready to take over PCT commissioning budgets in April 2012.
Nearly 95% of CCGs passed their SHA configuration risk assessment, allowing them to operate as shadow organisations until full authorisation in April 2013, reports BMJ Careers.
Only 5.8% of CCGs received a ‘red rating’ when measured on size, shape and practice engagement.
None of the London CCGs were rated as ‘red’ but CCGs in the Midlands and East SHA were most likely to get a ‘red’ rating overall.
Ninety-six percent of CCGs in the North of England SHA were rated as either ‘green’ or ‘amber’.
According to SHA risk assessments seen by BMJ Careers, CCGs were most likely to struggle with assessing the impact of their size.
