NHS City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for the commissioning (planning and purchasing of healthcare services for all local people in Hackney and the City of London.
In 2017/18 we moved from having nine clinically led Programme Boards focused mainly on healthcare bought by the CCG, to four care workstreams involving managers, staff and clinicians/practitioners from the CCG and local authorities (both Hackney Council and the City of London Corporation) working alongside staff from our local hospital, mental health trust, community groups and other providers and residents and patients to make decisions about how best to improve outcomes for local people.
There are four care workstreams, these are: Planned Care, Unplanned (or emergency / crisis) Care, Children, Young People and Maternity Services and Prevention. CCG GPs continue to be involved in each of the workstreams together with clinicians and practitioners from across the system and the whole of the CCG’s decision making structure, now supported by a wider breadth of practitioner views to enable clinically led commissioning.
We work alongside a variety of partners to commission and deliver health, care and wellbeing services to City and Hackney patients and residents alongside London Borough of Hackney and City of London Corporation; our service providers such as Homerton Hospital as the provider of emergency services, community health services, outpatients services; GP Confederation, representing all 42 practices in the local area; East London Foundation Trust providing mental health services; alongside other providers outside of the local area including Whittington Health, Moorfields Eye Hospital, University College Hospital and Barts Health.
