Who we are

A Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is an NHS organisation. More than 200 CCG organisations operate across the UK. Each CCG has a statutory role to ensure the best possible health services are available for people living and working in its local geographical area.

CCGs do this through planning, designing, purchasing and monitoring the performance of local NHS health services such as emergency, urgent and planned care, cancer services, mental health, learning disability, general practice and many other community services. It is also the CCG’s responsibility to improve services that are under-performing.

A CCG is led by an elected governing body made up of GPs, other clinicians including a nurse, secondary care consultant, and lay members. Details of our Governing Body are available here. Every GP practice is a member of their local CCG and influences the CCGs strategy. As a statutory body CCGs are accountable to NHS England who allocates CCG budgets and oversees and monitors their performance.

In Berkshire West the CCG is responsible for Reading, Wokingham and West Berkshire. It works with Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation TrustRoyal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust and South Central Ambulance Service to ensure people living and working in the area are provided with the most appropriate, relevant and high quality healthcare services.
