CCGs need to be able to choose AQP1st March 2012
The government has agreed to carry out a review of its policy about how Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are able to choose Any Qualified Provider (AQP).
After pressure from the Commissioning Coalition of the NHS Alliance and NAPC, the Department of Health said it would review the policy in October this year. Dr Mike Dixon, chair of the NHS Alliance said: "It's the outcome of what we've been able to persuade the government behind the scenes. What we really have agreed is that CCGs should be sovereign and not wrong-footed by the NHS Commissioning Board and Monitor into taking on commissioning methods they don't want to use."
