NHS Commissioning Board local area teams and clinical senates announced

22 June 2012

The NHS Commissioning Board has confirmed the geographies that its local area teams (previously PCT clusters) will serve.
The Board has also confirmed the number, and coverage, of clinical senates.
Details and maps of the 27 local area teams and the 12 clinical senates can be found at:

Two points that will be of particular interest to LOCs: 

  1. P13 ‘all local area teams taking on direct commissioning responsibilities for GP services, dental services, pharmacy and certain aspects of optical services’
  2. P21 Details will also be shared shortly on the future arrangements for clinical Networks

LOCSU is in close contact with the NHS CB team to work through the implications for LOCs in terms of future relationships between the representative committees and the new local area teams and other structures.
Guidance will be issued in due course.
LOCs with any questions or concerns in the meantime should contact LOCSU via jacquehudson@locsu.co.uk.
