CCG News

Delegated commissioning payment processes

Following a query from a practice, the arrangements for administering payments remains the same as last year, i.e. the team based at NHS England will continue to administer all the payments that they had done previously. The NHS England team are acting on the CCG’s behalf so the only difference practices will see is that the payment will come from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG rather than from NHSE.
