Our Clinical Commissioning Group
The eight clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Kent and Medway have been given conditional approval to merge and form a single CCG.
The decision by NHS England and NHS Improvement means that from 1 April 2020, subject to conditions being met, there will be one clinical commissioning group for Kent and Medway. This is part of plans to change the way some aspects of health and care services are organised so they can do more to:
- prevent ill-health
- provide better, more joined-up care for patients
- make best use of staff and funds to meet rising demand.
The single CCG will save time, money and effort, freeing up GP time to see patients, and staff and GP time to develop new integrated care partnerships and primary care networks, which are a vital part of improving care for local people. These changes are in line with the NHS Long Term Plan which was published earlier this year.
