From April 2013, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) assumed statutory responsibility for commissioning the majority of healthcare services. It is the responsibility of NHS England to support CCGs and to ensure that these statutory duties are being met.

To support CCGs in developing their commissioning plans NHS England published Everyone Counts: Planning for Patients 2013/14, planning framework for 2013-14, and Supporting Planning 2013114 for Clinical Commissioning Groups. Copies have been placed in the Library.
