NHS Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will be responsible for commissioning hospital, community and mental health services for the local population of Rushcliffe from April 2013, following the close down of the primary care trust. The CCG will work closely with the district and county council and other agencies to develop and deliver strategies that improve the local health and wellbeing.
NHS Rushcliffe CCG is a membership organisation of 16 GP practices in the area and is supported by a small management team. The Governing Body, which leads the organisation, includes GPs, a hospital consultant, a nurse and lay members. Governing Body meetings are held in public. Details can be found here or by calling 0115 8837880.
NHS Rushcliffe CCG has been authorised by the NHS Commissioning Board. This follows a rigorous and robust assessment, where the CCG demonstrated that it was able to commission safely, manage its finances, improve quality and reduce inequality.
Working collaboratively with other CCGs
Rushcliffe CCG works with Mansfield and Ashfield CCG, Newark and Sherwood CCG, Nottingham West CCG, Nottingham City CCG and Nottingham North and East CCG to commission healthcare services.
