Delegated Primary Care Commissioning Committee

On April 1, 2016 - three years to the day since the CCG came into being – we assumed responsibility for commissioning local primary care services. This refers primarily to GP services.

The delegation of this role from NHS England to the CCG is an extremely important development in the planning of healthcare services provided to the local population. The move was two-stage, as the CCG had initially elected to operate under joint delegated powers. This meant that for several months in 2015 and 2016 we worked with NHS England’s Wessex Area Team through a Joint Primary Care Commissioning Committee (see below for meeting papers). It was during this period CCG leaders resolved to take a bolder approach and to assume responsibility for commissioning primary care.

As the new commissioner for local primary care, we will be able to work more closely with our 23 member practices on planning the services provided to local people. We are working with them and their GP federation – Salus Medical Services Ltd – to better analyse the population, to identify trends and particular areas of need, allowing us to target resources where they can have the greatest impact.
