Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group

Who We Are and What We Do

Information regarding the NHS Structure in England, how Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) fit into this and the key organisations with which the Somerset CCG works in partnership is outlined on the NHS Choices website.

The Somerset CCG - Who we are and what are our responsibilities

The Somerset CCG was one of three new health commissioning organisations in the South West to be authorised on 11 December 2012. The decision means that the Somerset CCG took over the statutory responsibility of commissioning health services for Somerset’s 540,000 residents. It has an annual budget of over £650 million.

Information regarding the nine GP Commissioning Localities in Somerset

An important element of the organisational design is that it is based on a federation model. There are nine commissioning localities in Somerset, each with a nominated clinical delegate (GP) who sits on the Somerset CCG Clinical Operations Group (COG), with four of those delegates nominated to the Governing Body.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Somerset CCG and the nine federations has been developed. It sets out the general consensus on:

- the ways in which federations can contribute to clinical commissioning in Somerset

- the process for releasing federation commissioning budgets, and

- some features of the communication between federations and the Somerset CCG

More information about the GP Federations and their membership can be found by following this link to the GP Commissioning Localities Page.
