NHS Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was created in 2013 to organise the delivery of healthcare to 627,000 people living in west Hertfordshire.
CCGs are made up of our local GPs and other healthcare professionals and are responsible for ‘commissioning’ – planning, designing and paying for your NHS services. They work to help people stay well and to improve NHS services to meet the needs of local patients.
The CCG work with local health and social care organisations, patients and residents to make decisions about how budgets are spent.
CCGs oversee how services are provided to make sure services are of a high quality, easy for patients to access and are joined up with other services that look after people.
