The King’s Fund and the Nuffield Trust are working together to assess the implementation and impact of clinical commissioning groups. Between 2012 and 2015, we are following the evolution of clinical commissioning in six case-study sites and will publish the findings annually.

This first report is based on fieldwork conducted before CCGs had become fully authorised. It provides an overview of developments through to March 2013, plus an assessment of the opportunities and challenges ahead.
