CCGs & Local Authorities

The Role of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)

Commissioning is about getting the best possible health outcomes for the local population by assessing local needs, deciding priorities and strategies, and then buying services on behalf of the population from providers such as hospitals, clinics, community care, etc.

It is an ongoing process and CCGs must constantly respond and adapt to changing local circumstances. CCGs are responsible for the health of their entire population and are measured by how much they improve outcomes.

Close Working Relationships

Total Community Care works closely with many CCGs and has built up strong functional relationships by ensuring effective communication strategies are in place.
