An introduction to NHSCC

NHS Clinical Commissioners is the membership organisation of clinical commissioning groups. Our job is to help you get the best healthcare and health outcomes for your communities and patients.

We’re giving you a strong, influencing voice from the frontline to the wider NHS, national bodies, government, parliament and the media. We’re building new networks where you can share experience and expertise; and providing information, support, tools and resources to help you do your job better.
