Welcome to NHSCC

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

We give you a strong, influencing voice from the frontline to the wider NHS, national bodies, government, parliament and the media. Our member networks help commissioners to support each other with common challenges and to share best practice to enhance their work locally.

Visit our dedicated COVID-19 pages for updates and support for CCGs during the pandemic.
