Our Work

IMG 5939N P5

NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have been responsible for planning and buying local health services since April 2013.

CCGs combine the expertise of clinicians including family doctors (GPs), nurses and NHS managers – putting local doctors and nurses at the heart of decision-making.

Cheshire CCGs are responsible for planning and buying:

  • GP (family doctor) services – sometimes referred to as “primary care”
  • Planned (or elective) hospital care
  • Urgent and emergency care including “blue light” ambulance services, Accident and Emergency (A&E) services, NHS 111 (non-emergency line) and out-of-hours services which operate when GP practices are closed
  • Community health services (e.g. district nursing)
  • Maternity services
  • Older people’s healthcare services
  • Healthcare services for children, including those with complex healthcare needs
  • Rehabilitation services
  • Healthcare services for people with mental health conditions
  • Healthcare services for people with learning disabilities and autism
  • Continuing Healthcare and Funded Nursing Care support for people with complex needs who require specialist nursing support

To achieve this, the work of Cheshire CCG is split into the following directorates:

  • Clinical
  • Finance and Contracting
  • Governance and Corporate Development
  • Planning and Delivery
  • Quality, Patient Experience and Safeguarding
  • Strategy and Partnerships
