Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs)


Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are NHS organisations that bring  together local GPs and experienced health professionals to take on commissioning responsibilities for local health services.

As commissioners of local health services, a CCG is responsible for planning the right services to meet the needs of local people, buying local health services including community health care and hospital services, and checking that the services are delivering the best possible care and treatment for those who need them.

  • CCGs have teams of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who work closely with community pharmacy, GPs and other local health providers to help get the best out of medicines for local people. These teams are called medicines management teams (or “meds management”)
