Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) - Completion of the IGT  (19/03/2012)

The bodies mandated to complete the IGT are the legal entities except where we have to accept something different for pragmatic reasons e.g. PCT clusters rather than the PCT legal entities. CCGs will not become legal entities until 2013, but Sir David Nicholson (NHS Chief Executive) has directed that IGT completion should be part of the CCG authorisation process which will be needed before then.

Therefore, they must complete a version 10 IGT and provide an acceptable improvement plan for any shortfalls as part of the authorisation process later this year. They may complete a version 9 assessment at 31 March 2012 if this helps focus management attention and helps them prepare for authorisation.
