In the latest bulletin for CCGs, NHS England confirm that the deadline for all constitution amendments has been extended to 6 January 2015. The decision has been made to allow CCGs time to fully engage their membership regarding constitution amendments. NHS England has set out the procedure for making an amendment in the Model wording for amendments to Clinical Commissioning Groups’ constitutions.

NHS England has also set out in a letter the suggested form of words for constitutional amendments following the legislative reform order that enabled CCGs and NHS England to form joint committees from 1 October.
