This guide has been developed by NHS England and NHS Improvement to help give patients choice over where and how they receive care.


The guide draws together the minimum legal and contractual responsibilities clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) need to meet, but will also enable CCGs to assess how well choice is working in the services they commission, for both physical and mental health, within their localities and decide where improvement is required
