- BCCG’s Governing Body will receive the report at its meeting on 5 November 2014 and MKCCG Governing Body with receive the report on 25 November 2014.
- The Healthcare Review was set up in early 2014. It has brought together five partners: Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (BCCG), Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (MKCCG), NHS England and the two national regulators, Monitor and the Trust Development Authority. Monitor appointed McKinsey & Company to support the review partners in understanding the need for changes to services and in designing sustainable solutions that best meet the needs of patients in Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes. Their work has now been completed.
- BCCG and MKCCG came together for purpose of analysis because both share similar issues around the financial and clinical sustainability of local health services. However, this does not imply that the same solutions will fit the needs of both Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes. Each CCG will continue to make commissioning decisions independently and on behalf of its own local population.
