Cooperation and Competition Panel (CCP)
The Cooperation and Competition Panel (CCP) began working on 30 January 2009, with Lord Carter of Coles as the panel's chair.
The CCP was to investigate potential breaches of the principles and rules of cooperation and competition (PRCC), and to make independent recommendations to strategic health authorities, the Department of Health and Monitor (in relation to NHS foundation trusts) on how such breaches should be resolved.
The CCP also had the function of reviewing proposed mergers and advising on the wider development of cooperation, patient choice and competition within the NHS.
