38429 - Clinical Priorities Advisory Group (Answered)

Ms Margaret Ritchie
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, when NHS England plans to publish the (a) agenda for and (b) minutes of the June 2016 meeting of its Commissioning Priorities Advisory Group.

George Freeman

The clinical commissioning policy propositions that will be considered for relative prioritisation by the Clinical Priorities Advisory Group (CPAG) in June have already been published by NHS England and been the subject of public consultation. These can be found at:

The recommendations of CPAG will be considered by a sub-committee of the NHS England Board (the Specialised Services Commissioning Committee) at the end of June 2016. After this meeting, the list of policies approved for routine commissioning will be published on the NHS England website.
