NHS mandate and national outcomes frameworks – implications for local authorities

Policy product type: LGiU essential policy briefing

Published date: December 10, 2012

Author: Christine Heron, LGiU Associate

Issues covered:

  • Clinical Commissioning Groups
  • joint working
  • NHS Commissioning Board

The Government’s mandate to the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB) sets out a direction for the NHS that will have a major impact on joint work between clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authorities.
Most of the topics in the mandate are already shared local priorities, and there is significant emphasis on further integration, including in areas that have traditionally been difficult to implement such as access to records.
The NHS CB is expected to work in partnership with the Local Government Association (LGA) at a national level and with local authorities at a local level.
This briefing will be of interest to members and officers working closely with partners in health – particularly those working in social care and public health and members of health and wellbeing boards.
