I am writing a piece of coursework about the prioritisation of spending on population health and I just want to check that I have this straight in my head on who is involved.
So as of this april, clinical commissioning groups made up of representatives from GP practices distribute spending on most local services including emergency services, maternity care etc... Then the NHS commissioning board is in charge of spending on preventative services and sexual health among other things.
Is the NHS commissioning board under the department of health? What decisions are made on spending by central government?
Sorry if this is a bit of a stupid question, I find a lot of the jargon on their websites very confusing!
