Berkshire West CCG take vote on single accountable officer plan


Healthcare in Berkshire West, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire could soon be managed by a single chief officer after CCG merger proposals.

Voting soon on merger plans, it comes after the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Integrated Care System (BOB ICS) announced proposals in September to change the way NHS services are planned and funded in Reading, Wokingham, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Now, according to a report from the Reading Chronicle, the CCG merger plans have now been revealed following a public consultation.

The same report outlined the three proposals. They are:

Appointing a single accountable officer and designing a shared management team for the three CCGs

Creating stronger Integrated Care Partnerships (ICPs) for all three areas

Creating a single CCG for the three areas

Plans to merge the three CCGs and develop the ICPs will be considered in the next financial year.

In December, AMP reported on the Scarborough CCG preparing for Brexit.
