NHS Commissioning Board due to start work

The new NHS Commissioning Board, which is at the heart of the government's controversial NHS reforms in England, is due to start work , its aim is help patients shop around and compare GPs.

It will take over the running of the NHS, using a staff of around 3,500 and overall responsibility for NHS care worth around £80bn.

Its role will in time be overseeing the new clinical commissioning groups led by GPs and other clinicians who will commission/buy care within the NHS, and organising the treatment of complicated conditions.
