NHS City and Hackey Clinical Commissioning Group

A Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is the name for the new health commissioning organisation which replaced Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) in April 2013. Commissioning organisations are responsible for planning and buying of NHS healthcare across the City and Hackney to meet the needs of the local population.

What is commissioning?

NHS Commissioning is a complicated process that combines predicting demand; planning services; procuring products; and managing health providers, such as hospitals and private treatment centres.

The key difference between a PCT and a CCG is that the commissioning of services will be led by local GPs. This is because GPs are better placed to understand what services patients need, as nearly all patients go to their GP before accessing any health services.

City and Hackney CCG has been authorised by the new NHS Commissioning Board, who ensure that the CCG has demonstrated that we can commission services effectively.

As a CCG we work with our local communities and other partners in City and Hackney, to improve people’s health and make sure they are able to receive high quality, prompt local services. We will achieve this aim through the decisions we make, the actions we take and the way in which we work
