Our sponsors

The Department of Health, and Monitor, are the sponsors of the CCP, and they receive our advice and recommendations in each investigation and determine the action that should be taken as a result. Our sponsors appoint the Chair and Director of the CCP, approve the CCP's annual business plan and receive our annual report.
