About NHS Cheshire CCG
NHS Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for planning and buying healthcare services for a population of around 770,000 people. It is our responsibility to ensure the local health budget of c£1.2bn is well spent.
A clinically-led organisation which encourages public involvement at all stages of the commissioning cycle, Cheshire CCG ensures that the views of clinicians and residents are front and centre of our decision-making processes.
It is no secret that demand for health and care services is rising faster than budgets. Quite rightly, the people of Cheshire expect NHS organisations and others to work together to help meet this challenge.
NHS Cheshire CCG is committed to working with partners to ensure that the people of Cheshire are able to access consistently good care – wherever they live – and to work together to deliver the priorities outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan.
Central to this is the development of Integrated Care Partnerships in both Cheshire East and Cheshire West which, via the development of more localised “Care Communities”, will enable more people to access the care and support they need closer to home.
We know there are system-wide challenges to tackle and that examples of fragmented, inconsistent care remain. But by working together to solve our shared issues we will not only ensure better, more consistent care, but give Cheshire a more powerful voice in championing the needs of local people.
