NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) have today released a new report highlighting how the role of nurses on a CCG’s governing body has changed over time, empowering them to make more of a difference for their local patients and populations.
It reveals how many CCGs are now employing full time chief or executive nurses with responsibility for the day-to-day running of an element of the organisation, usually quality, going far beyond the legal requirement for a registered nurse to sit on their governing body.
West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group is supporting this week’s Carers Week campaign to help people develop an understanding of just how important carers are in the community.
Commissioners in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland today announced that services previously provided by Central Nottingham Clinical Services (CNCS) will be transferring to the provision of Derbyshire Health United from midnight tonight.
Following a number of challenges over the last year CNCS declared their intention to go into administration. Commissioners have been working with CNCS since being notified of their intention to cease operating and have already put in place the arrangements to continue services for the public in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
