Our role

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) are groups of local GPs, hospital clinicians and community representatives who make decisions about what health services to commission (buy) in their area.

Until now the vast majority of health services have been commissioned by Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). PCTs were abolished in April 2013 and CCGs are now responsible for commissioning local health services such as those typically provided by large hospital trusts, including community and mental health, and some voluntary and third sector services.
