What we do

Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) put local clinicians in control of the healthcare budget so they can design services around the needs of individual people and the communities they live in.

This means that most decisions about what we do are focused on the needs of local people.
We want to transform the experiences of our patients; significantly improve their outcomes; and to use the creativity and resource of our local services to help people live longer and healthier lives.

To do this, we plan, buy and monitor (commission) a number of services, both from the NHS and voluntary sector. A list of the services we commission can be found here. We also work closely with other partner organisations, including other CCGs and NHS England, a list of these organisations can be found here
