The merging of CCGs is intended to support system-wide working and more streamlined commissioning, with the single CCG directing commissioning across the entire system as it takes on the function of strategic commissioner. This will also aid cohesion with other organisations within the integrated care system and Primary Care Networks.

- preparing plan for sharing working arrangements (i.e. joint accountable officers);
- assist the process to formally merge through ledger migration, policy consolidation;
- identifying the overall financial impact on the joint commissioning or merged organisation for example in running costs;
- identifying the financial and performance benefits of collaborative working
