NHS North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for planning and paying for healthcare services in the region. This is what we call ‘commissioning’.
Our ambition is to help local people live healthier lives, and to make sure that when people do require medical treatment, they receive the best possible standard of care.
If you are registered with a North Lincolnshire GP practice, we are responsible for commissioning much of your healthcare. This includes mental health and maternity services, treatments you receive in hospital, urgent and emergency care and some community services.
We are clinically-led, which means that local doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals direct us. Our clinicians see North Lincolnshire patients every day and understand what our local population needs, making them ideally placed to make decisions about local care.
There are 195 CCGs in England, including ours. CCGs are responsible for approximately 2/3 of the total NHS England budget; or £75.6 billion in 2018/19.
