News & Policy
Our role is to help CCGs secure the best possible healthcare and health outcomes for their communities and patients.
We’re giving CCGs a strong, influencing voice from the frontline to the wider NHS, national bodies, government, parliament and the media. We’re building new networks where CCGs can share experience and expertise; and providing information, support, tools and resources to help CCGs do their job better.
