Date: 09/10/2020 | Category: CCG News

Local residents have shown support for the proposal to bring together Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK) Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to form one CCG according to a recent survey.

The survey, recently undertaken by Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Groups found that the majority of respondents either supported or were neutral about the proposal.

Dr Nicola Smith, GP and Chair of Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Commissioning Groups said:

‘We are delighted that when we asked local residents for their feedback, the majority could see the benefits it would bring to the local healthcare system and supported the proposal.  The survey also gave residents the opportunity to share any concerns they had, which we can continue to acknowledge and address as we progress. I would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey”

The findings from the survey has formed part of the final submission by Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Groups to NHS England Improvement in the application to become one CCG by April 2021.

The application is currently being reviewed by NHS England and a decision will be announced later this month.
