Halton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is made up of representatives from each of the 17 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
Creation of CCGs forms part of the gvernment'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.
