Leicester Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Groups
All three Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS Leicester City, NHS West Leicestershire, and East Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) have responsibility for commissioning the majority of health services for the local population. Clinical Commissioning Groups do not provide health services. Instead, they are responsible for planning and commissioning health care services for their local area with resources delegated to them by NHS England. They are accountable to NHS England and Parliament for how they use these resources and their results. Commissioning is about getting the best possible health outcomes for the local population. This involves assessing local needs, deciding priorities and strategies, and then buying services on behalf of the population from providers such as hospitals, community health providers, and GPs. CCGs must constantly respond and adapt to changing local circumstances. They are responsible for the health of the entire population and measured how much they improve outcomes for patients.
