A study of appointments to the boards of 59 PCGs covered by the 13 health authorities in the West Midlands found concerns about fairness, openness and transparency. There was concern about the lack of a competency framework for GP members. Health authorities questioned whether the lay members of boards were representative of the local population. Some health authorities provided no induction training for boards.
