South East Hampshire CCG Board Papers 2013-2014

South East Hampshire CCG Board Papers 2013-2014


As with other CCGs, the South East Hampshire CCG (one of three CCGs in Hampshire) was established on 31st March 2013. The reason for having a look at the Board papers for South East Hampshire CCG is that the headquarters of Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust is in Hampshire. Furthermore, the NHS Oxfordshire PCT document “Maintaining and improving quality during transition” (designed to inform newly created CCGs and other new NHS agencies) specifically stated with respect to Ridgeway (now Southern Health):

5.3.3. NHS Oxfordshire and all of the direct receiver organisations will not be the lead commissioner for Southern Health and a relationship needs to be developed with CCGs in Hampshire to make sure that clinical quality is reviewed to a high level.

Because of this statement, I thought it was worth looking at the Hampshire CCGs’ Board papers to see if I could find any Hampshire CCGs either identifying themselves as the lead commissioner for Southern Health learning disability services or identifying any other agencies as the lead commissioner.

  1. In the previous test with metal bell, hourglass and water clocks, earlier, the ancients by hublot replica pole test day. The sun rises, the West long pole backward shadow, as the sun moves to the zenith, the shadow slowly shortened, and the rotation around the pole, at noon, the sun reaches the head, the shadow shorter (summer solstice, most places do not even shadow) after noon, the sun in the bar The West pole shadow backward East, and gradually grow. The shadow of the pole moment does not move, which is around the pole, forming right-handed direction. The reason for the right hand, because the vertical rod is measured on the northern hemisphere of patek philippe replica the ancients, is because the sun for a year, are biased in favor of the South's sake. If the ancient people of the southern hemisphere pole test day, the rotation of its shadow In contrast to the observations of fake watches the northern hemisphere, the shadow will be left. When people want to make a mechanical watch, they are used to it.Used to determine the right direction of the time of flight of the ancients, naturally chose the way we use the pointer type, the right hand way.
