Description

A Clinical Commissioning Group is an ORGANISATION.

Clinical Commissioning Groups  (CCG) are responsible for implementing the commissioning roles as set out in the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

Clinical Commissioning Groups are groups of  GP Practices  that are responsible for commissioning most health and care SERVICES for PATIENTS.

These groups of GP Practices, working with other healthcare professionals and in partnership with local communities and Local Authorities are responsible for commissioning the majority of NHS SERVICES  for PATIENTS within their local communities. They have a duty to work with Local Authorities in relation to health and adult social care, early years services, public health etc.

The Clinical Commissioning Groups  are not responsible for commissioning all  SERVICES. They have the flexibility to decide which commissioning activities they undertake themselves or choose to buy in commissioning support from external ORGANISATIONS.

NHS England:

Clinical Commissioning Groups  hold their constituent GP Practices to account for stewardship of resources and the outcomes they achieve. 

For further information on Clinical Commissioning Groups, see the NHS England  website at Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).
