Introduction, vision and values
Nottingham North & East Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is your local NHS – responsible for planning, buying and quality checking local NHS Services.
We are GP-led, which means that any decisions made about the health care services in the Nottingham North and East area are driven by the knowledge and experience of local doctors.
Our GPs work together with local patients to ensure we plan the right services for our patient population. We passionately believe in putting patients at the centre of the NHS and have lots of opportunities for patients to get involved including our:
- Patient and Public Involvement Committee
- Service User and Public Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention Group
- Practice Patient Group’s Working Group
We are one of seven Clinical Commissioning Groups in Nottinghamshire, including Nottingham City and Bassetlaw.
Our CCG is made up of 20 GP practices covering a population of approximately £151,000 organised collectively to commission health services for the patient population living in Arnold, Burton Joyce, Calverton, Carlton, Colwick, Daybrook, Gedling, Giltbrook, Hucknall, Lowdham, Mapperley, Netherfield and Newthorpe.
We will do this by:
- Improving the health of the community
- Securing the provision of safe, high quality services
- Achieving financial balance and value for money
Our clinical leadership shaped the values that will guide our actions and decisions. These values are presented using the acronym for HEALTH:
- Honesty, openness and integrity are central to everything we do
- Empowering and communicating with our patient community
- Appropriate use of our resources to deliver best value
- Leadership that is strong and visible
- Together with our partners we will strive to improve the health of our community
- High Quality is our standard
Our key aims are to:
- Reduce health inequalities in the local population by targeting those people with the greatest health needs
- Drive up the quality of care in order to improve health outcomes and reduce unwarranted clinical variation
- Direct available resources to where they will deliver the greatest benefit to the local population
- Commission appropriate models of care for older and vulnerable people with complex needs, ensuring all patients are treated with dignity and respect
- Ensure that patients are able to make choices about the care they receive and are seen in the right place at the right time by the right person.
