Rushcliffe CCG is a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) within the NHS. It brings together a powerful coalition of 16 local general practices, community health professionals (including nurses and therapists), and the local registered population (122,000 patients), to plan and fund local health services.
Commissioning is the process of assessing health needs, identifying the services required to meet those needs and then buying those services from a wide range of healthcare providers, which can include hospitals, pharmacies and voluntary organisations.
Clinical Commissioning offers front-line clinicians, such as doctors and community nurses, the opportunity to play major role in the development and delivery of strategies and activities that improved local health and well-being.
