The NHS Commissioning Board (NHSCB) has announced that it is working on a new formula for allocating Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) budgets. The ‘Fair Shares’ formula is designed to take into account information on each CCG’s population, down to the individual patient level, when assessing the overall needs of each CCG area. The NHSCB will make a decision on whether to use the formula to inform CCG budgets for 2013/14 in October and the final budget allocation for CCGs will be revealed in December.
