Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group
NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group now has a new website: www.cumbriaccg.nhs.uk
NHS services are designed and delivered around the needs of local people.
In Cumbria, for a number of years, GPs have been involved in planning how and where health services should be delivered for communities.
Now GPs are taking on a more formal role. Family doctors – not NHS managers – will be responsible in the future for ‘commissioning’ Cumbria’s health services.
‘Commissioning’ means planning and purchasing NHS services for local people from hospital trusts and other organisations.
Over the course of this year, the Cumbria CCG will go through an authorisation process to replace the county’s primary care trust, NHS Cumbria as the main commissioner of local NHS services.
Draft constituion and standing orders documents
These documents are both in draft and currently under review.
The Constitution is written subject to being ratified in April after the development of the Cumbria CCG Standing Orders by the Governing Body.
