Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is a clinically led organisation, formed in 2012 as part of the changes brought about in the NHS under the Health and Social Care Act.
The CCG worked with its Governing Body and GP members to achieve formal authorisation with no conditions. The organisation was, therefore, deemed fully fit to take on its new responsibilities from 1 April 2013.
Walsall CCG is now responsible for commissioning (buying) and managing the majority of healthcare services for the borough.
The CCG buys healthcare services from providers across the NHS, commercial and third sectors. The NHS provides the funding for this and NHS England meets with the CCG four times a year to provide assurance to the Department of Health that the CCG is meeting its statutory duties.
We are committed to improving the healthcare of residents by providing high-quality, co-ordinated care that is based around patients’ individual needs. Our 52 member practices serve communities across the borough, covering a population of 274,000.
