What we do

We provide CCGs with a strong collective voice and represent them in the national debate on the future of healthcare in England.

We facilitate shared learning and deliver networking opportunities for our members so that local clinicians can commission the best possible services for their patients and populations. 

We are proudly member led and member driven, providing the national, credible voice of local clinical commissioning. Our members set our priorities so that we are working effectively to find national solutions to key local issues that matter to them, help CCGs to secure the best possible healthcare and health outcomes for their patients, support them to embed commissioning within Integrated Care Systems. 

We currently have 90 per cent of all CCGs in membership – if you’re not in membership then we can’t represent you during this crucial transitional year.

We represent

We give CCGs a strong, influencing voice from the frontline to the wider NHS, national bodies, government, parliament and the media.

As part of this we meet regularly with NHS England and NHS Improvement, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and his ministers, the Department of Health and Social Care, CQC, NICE and others to raise the issues that might be holding commissioners back and help to find solutions and shape national policy. We also respond to consultations and give evidence to parliamentary inquiries on issues that will make a difference to CCGs and the NHS.

We connect

We have a number of member networks and groups, including for lay members, mental health commissioners, and finance officers. These provide an opportunity for commissioners involved in these areas to come together and support each other with common challenges as well as share best practice to enhance their work locally.

As part of the NHS Confederation, our members can access a range of bespoke leadership support offers.

We support

We produce publications and briefings, both to demonstrate the positive difference that CCGs are making, and to help spread learning among our members.

We hold workshops, events and webinars to keep members informed on current topics and facilitate direct engagement with senior decision-makers.

We also provide CCGs with information to help navigate the complexities of clinical commissioning via our member only bulletins and briefings, available in the members only area of our website.
