Leicester City CCG
Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was formed in early 2011 after the Health and Social Care Act announced the abolition of primary care trusts and introduced new organisations led by GPs.
Initially operating in shadow form under the guidance of the outgoing primary care trust, the CCG officially took over responsibility for planning and managing health care for the local population from April 2013.
Leicester City CCG looks after a budget of around £364 million per year, to plan and manage healthcare for the local population and work with partners to address poor health in the city. The services that it is responsible for include hospital treatment, rehabilitation services, urgent and emergency care, community health services, mental health and learning disability services.
Clinical commissioning groups are led by GPs therefore the CCG is not responsible for the core activities of GP practices. This role is carried out by NHS England. All GP practices must be a member of a clinical commissioning group
