Milestone boost for Scarborough and Ryedale NHS group

First published in News

FOLLOWING a review by NHS England, NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has announced all of its “conditions of authorisation” have been lifted.

This means the organisation – which was set up last year to commission health care – will have greater independence in commissioning healthcare services.

Dr Phil Garnett, clinical chairman of the CCG said: “It’s great news that our organisation has reached this important milestone which is a reflection of the hard work and determination of our staff.

“At our initial authorisation assessment in February 2012, a small number of issues were identified which meant we had to develop improvement plans in order to have them lifted.

“These mainly related to our financial capability and the historic debt we inherited from our predecessors.”
