North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group
Telephone: 020 3688 2800
Clinical Commissioning Groups were formed as a result of the NHS White Paper “Equality and excellence: Liberating the NHS” and the subsequent health and social care bill. These set out the governments long term plans for the future of the NHS, and states how the NHS will:
- Put patients at the heart of what the NHS does
- Focus on improving those things that really matter to patients
- Empower and liberate clinicians to innovate, with the freedom to focus on improving healthcare
The fundamental difference with a clinical commissioning group is that they are led by clinicians. For patients, this means that Doctors will be heavily involved in ensuring the appropriate provision of local health services, and will work more collaboratively with other organisations in making decisions about health.
