Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group

About us: 

What is a Clinical Commissioning Group?

Clinical Commissioning Groups(CCGs) commission most of the hospital and community NHS services in the local areas for which they are responsible. Commissioning involves deciding what services are needed, and ensuring that they are provided.  CCGs are overseen by NHS England which retains responsibility for commissioning primary care services such as GP and dental services, as well as some specialised hospital services. All GP practices now belong to a  CCG, but groups also include other health professionals such as nurses.

Services include:

  • Most planned hospital care
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Urgent and emergency care inc. out of hours
  • Most community health services
  • Mental health and learning disability services

 

CCGs play a major role in achieving good health outcomes for the local population that they serve.
