Google Scholar: Look up in Google Scholar


Clinicians are in charge but what are the potential pitfalls? A research project from The Open University, funded by the National Institute for Health Research, looked into the issue.

Clinical leadership is central to the rationale for establishing and for maintaining Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). But the challenge of engaging clinicians from both the primary and secondary care sectors seems to be immense.

One aspect of this challenge is to engage GPs actively in the process of commissioning and service redesign. A second aspect is the need to engage with secondary care clinicians in something far more meaningful than token representation.
