Robert Creighton: Lessons for CCGs in the new NHS


Published: 28/03/2013

In this video, Robert Creighton, Chief Executive of Ealing Primary Care Trust from 2002-2011, discusses what he thinks are the critical lessons for the new clinical commissioning groups that will take over responsibility for the commissioning of care from primary care trusts from 1 April 2013.

Robert describes the difficulties encountered in changing general practice, and reflects on what it was like to manage a PCT for the best part of a decade.

Robert is interviewed by Nicholas Timmins, Senior Associate at the Nuffield Trust and former Public Policy Editor of the Financial Times, who interviewed Robert and 11 other NHS leaders for a new paper published by the Nuffield Trust: Changing of the guard: lessons for the NHS from departing health leaders (March 2013).

The publication provides insight and learning for the new generation of leaders charged with leading the reformed NHS.
