Patients Changing Responsible Commissioner

This policy applies to any patient in circumstances where Shropshire Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (STWCCG) is the responsible commissioner for their NHS care.


It equally applies to any patient needing medical treatment where the Secretary of State has prescribed that the CCG is the responsible commissioner for the provision of that medical treatment as part of NHS care to that person.


Where responsibility for providing NHS services to the patient has been transferred to STWCCG, STWCCG will, subject to the terms of this policy, honour existing funding commitments made by the patient’s previous NHS commissioner.


The terms of this policy outline the circumstances where STWCCG will and will not honour existing funding commitments.
