Presents the results of the fourth annual online survey of GPs and practice managers in the six CCGs. The survey captures a diverse range of perspectives in each area: GPs who sit on the governing body; GPs who are practice or member representatives; GPs without a formal role in the CCG; and practice managers with or without a formal role in the CCG. Findings show that a founding principle of CCGs – to improve clinical engagement in commissioning – has not yet been realised fully: CCG managers and NHS England were seen as more influential than GP leaders; and only one fifth of GPs without a formal role in the CCG felt able to influence decisions.
