During 2012/13 general practices across England prepared to take on responsibility for the commissioning of the majority of their local population by forming Clinical Commissioning Groups.

By April 2013 the whole of England was covered by CCGs, each one established as a statutory body.

In order to become established each emerging CCG was required to go through an authorisation process. This was to assure the NHS Commissioning Board (now NHS England) that CCGs were able to:

  • Commission safely
  • Discharge responsibly their stewardship of NHS budgets
  • Exercise their functions in relation to improving quality, reducing inequalities and being efficient
  • And hence deliver better outcomes within their resources.

As part of this there was a process whereby CCGs needed to submit an application and a range of supporting documents to demonstrate how they met the required standards (domains) set by the NHS Commissioning Board.  These documents are available on this page, in the Downloads section.

NHS Portsmouth CCG was selected as a Wave One CCG, and received formal authorisation on 11 December 2012. 

We are retaining this page as an archived record of our authorisation process.
