The Directly Commissioned Services Committee (a Committee of the NHS England Board) determined at its meeting in January 2014 that the agenda and. minutes of the Clinical Priorities Advisory Group (CPAG) will be published on the NHS England website, at the point at which the recommendations of the CPAG have been approved.

Papers taken to the CPAG are usually national service specifications or clinical access policies and these are routinely taken through a 12 week public consultation, unless there is an urgent clinical reason to move rapidly to implementation.
