Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group,

How do you verify that all staff employed by your practices as nurse practitioners/advanced nurse practitioners are appropriately qualified and accredited.

Concerns have been raised about practices having nurse staff working in roles for which they are not qualified or accredited including on-call duties.

can you confirm when the primary care commissioning teams last audited the non gp staff being employed in practices who have been given contracts to deliver safe primary care services to the patient population.

who is the manager for primary care commissioning?

who is responsible for ensuring the terms of the individual practice primary care gp contracts are being complied with ?

how does the ccg check to ensure that its contracting practices are providing the service as agreed in the individual contracts and not acting or performing in breach of the agreed terms of each individual practice primary care contract?

Yours faithfully,

Gillian Lansley
