Who We Are
North Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (NN CCG) is a local membership organisation led by family doctors that is responsible for planning and paying for healthcare services. We do not provide healthcare like a GP Practice or hospital. Our role is to make sure the appropriate NHS care is in place for the people of North Norfolk, within the budget we have.
Formed in 2012 following the Health and Social Care Act 2012, we are made up of 19 GP practices in North Norfolk and rural Broadland. These practices are all members of our organisation. The member doctors will lead the decisions about which hospital services, mental health services and the community healthcare services are needed for the approximately 172,000 people living in the North Norfolk area.
When we do our planning and buying we will work with other nearby CCGs in Norfolk to help make sure local services are consistent. More details about what we plan to commission in 2016/17 are in our Plan On a Page.
Primary care services, which are GPs, dentists, pharmacies and opticians, are currently commissioned by NHS England.
The new NHS Structures are explained in this poster published on the NHS Employers website.
Our aims are:
- To work with patients, staff and stakeholders to offer care that is high-quality, good value for money and delivered (where possible) closer to home
- To maximise the potential of primary care to deliver excellent services for patients
- To provide information to our GPs to help inform work and planning
- To involve patients in decision making
- To reduce health inequalities
- To aid educational opportunities for staff in GP surgeries to improve services
