NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for commissioning most of the healthcare services for the people of Greenwich. This means it is responsible for planning which services need to be in place and ensuring that there are a range of healthcare providers able to deliver high quality care to patients when they need it.
We have produced a prospectus which outlines what we do as a Clinical Commissioning Group and details the structure of our organisation and areas we are currently focussing on. The prospectus is available here. CCGs are different from any previous NHS organisation. They are led by GPs who are better placed to understand the needs of their patients and the healthcare of their local population.
CCGs are membership organisations made up of the GP practices in the borough. As a membership organisation comprising of all the 44 GP practices in Greenwich, our CCG is dedicated to planning and commissioning the best possible health services for Greenwich residents.
CCGs bring together expertise from the broadest range of health and care professionals to influence local services. In Greenwich we work with our partners in the local NHS, including hospitals, mental health providers, pharmacists and dentists as well as the Royal Borough of Greenwich, local community groups, public and patients, to improve health and wellbeing, reduce health inequalities, and ensure everyone has equal access to the health services they need.
Along with commissioning local health services, we are also responsible for monitoring how well these are provided. We can do this much better if we hear and understand what our residents think of their health services. We are committed to getting your views on whether the services you use are meeting your needs.
