High Weald Lewes and Havens 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).

High Weald Lewes and Havens CCG brings together 125 GPs, working in 21 practices, who look after more than 164,000 people who live in the area working with 32 pharmacies.
The CCG address is:
