    It is relatively easy to find this information. Search 'NHS Reforms explained' both The Guardian and BBC News had useful, easy to understand articles. I think BBC has a 'questions answered' article on it as well. On the King's Fund website there is a helpful animation explaining the new structure.

    The SHAs have also been abolished
    CCGs commission all healthcare services apart from GP services
    GPs are part of the CCGs and receive 60% of the NHS budget
    NHS England commission GP services
    However, the PCTs used to receive 80% of the NHS budget
    Many redundant jobs were gotten rid of in the reforms, including managerial/accounting jobs which have now been incorporated into the job of a GP, who have not received a pay rise.

    Its worth noting that the CCG's still contain a large number of the staff that previously sat under the PCT - most CCG's are still lead by managerial staff that ran the previous PCT - and this is generally for good reason.

    Commissioning services is a complicated process but to put it simply, the CCG agrees and provides funding for services given to the local population, generally (but not exclusively) through NHS trusts. They set the tariffs and the expected performance (Seeing patients in x amount of time, number of successful interventions, % of population receiving treatment, ect) They then hold these services to account and can withhold some of the payment if performance metrics aren't met (Within agree contract) They can also pull funding completely and halt service provision.

    Think of it as NHS England and the CCG are given money to buy services for there respective populations - NHS trusts (In particular Foundation Trusts) act like independent businesses.

    Its more complex than this, but thats a pretty good overview of the general concept.
