New web tool signposts learning and development opportunities

A comprehensive, new CCG learning and support web tool has been published to support CCGs as they prepare for authorisation, the clinical leadership of commissioning and their development beyond authorisation. It provides access to the development resources that meet current learning needs and which every proposed CCG can expect to be able to access during 2012-13.

The web tool is designed as an easy-to-use series of web pages organised according to the domains of authorisation. Its development has been informed over a number of months by work with proposed CCGs and national primary care organisations. It aims to draw together in one place the focused learning outcomes for 2012-13 and the key products identified to support these.

As well as resources provided by the Board Authority and Department of Health, it links through to support available from key national bodies, including the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, the Royal College of General Practitioners, the NHS Leadership Academy and the NHS Alliance and National Association of Primary Care. It is designed to complement local opportunities which are supported by SHA and PCT clusters.
