Brighton and Hove CCG
CCGs are commissioning organisations formed from general practices. All practices are required to join a CCG. Practices will shape commissioning decisions and hold the CCG to account for decisions made on their behalf. Many CCGs cover a smaller area than the previous PCTs. They are intended to ensure a closer relationship between local people, GPs and commissioning decisions (deciding on what and how they will buy services to meet the health needs of their patients).
Brighton and Hove CCG serves a registered population of 299,400, has 48 GP practices and 59 pharmacies.
