NHS Halton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is made up of representatives from each of the 14 practices across Runcorn and Widnes.
We are responsible for planning NHS services across the borough, and work with other clinicians and healthcare providers to ensure they meet the needs of local people.
* Elective hospital care
* Rehabilitation care
* Urgent and emergency care
* Most community health services
* Mental health and learning disability services* GP services (from 1st April 2015)
Creation of CCGs forms part of the government's wider desire to create a clinically-driven commissioning system that is more sensitive to the needs of patients.
Our organisation works with patients and healthcare professionals, as well as in partnership with local communities and Halton Borough Council to make sure that health and social care is linked together for people whenever possible. In addition to GPs, our governing body will have at least one registered nurse and a doctor who is a secondary care specialist.
Halton CCG is overseen by NHS England, which ensures that we have the capacity and capability to commission services successfully and to meet our financial responsibilities.

NHS Halton CCG is wholly supportive of partnership working
and as such is an active participant in the Staff Partnership Forum facilitated
by NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit. The CCG
utilises this forum as a vehicle and mechanism to support proactive staff
engagement, consultation and, where appropriate, negotiation. The CCG
does not employ anyone who undertakes relevant union official duties as
outlined in the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements)
Regulations 2017 and therefore no time is released from this employer in
relation to official duties. The CCG liaises and works with CSU TU
representatives and area/regional representatives from those recognised unions
whose time will be recorded with their employing authority.
