Who we are

A membership organisation

North Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is a membership organisation made up of all 18 GP practices in the area, led by clinical specialists and experienced health managers.

Together, we’re responsible for planning and buying the majority of health care services for about 210,000 residents. 

See an introduction to the NHS to find out how the CCG fits into the NHS structure and about how the health system works.

Because we’re run by family doctors and health specialists, we have a very good understanding of what patients need.

But we work closely with local communities, patients, North Somerset Council, service providers (such as hospital trusts) and a range of local and national organisations to agree priorities.

Our aim

Our aim is to make the best use of the money available, and make certain that the people of North Somerset get the health services they need.

We also want to reduce inequalities, establish easier access to services for patients, and improve integration between health and social care.

This way, we can help everyone in North Somerset to lead a healthier, happier life, and to recover from any illness or injury as quickly and fully as possible.

Underpinning all of our work is a commitment to equality, diversity and human rights.
