Dates have been agreed for the key parts of the clinical commissioning group (CCG) authorisation process.
Meetings have been set up for each wave of CCGs for:
- the moderation panel which makes recommendations as to whether a CCG should be fully authorised or authorised with conditions;
- the conditions panel which considers what support is required where a CCG has not supplied sufficient evidence to meet a threshold for one or more authorisation criteria; and
- the CCG authorisation sub-committee which makes the authorisation decisions.

The conclusions of each sub-committee meeting will be published immediately after each meeting, once decision letters have been issued to CCGs.
The full end-to-end process is described here and includes a flowchart identifying the points where CCGs will have the opportunity to submit any further evidence – where necessary – before their application is considered at the relevant NHS CB CCG authorisation sub-committee.
Although wave 1 CCGs will be able to identify all their individual dates and wave 4 CCGs will be able to see their moderation and sub-committee dates, this table does not show at which moderation and conditions panel waves 2 and 3 will be considered, or at which conditions panel wave 4 CCGs will be considered. The distribution of CCGs within these meetings is currently being agreed.
