As of April 1st 2013, Primary Care Trusts were abolished and replaced by Clinical Commissioning Groups.
From 1st April 2018 Bracknell & Ascot CCG have joined with Windsor, Ascot, Maidenhead CCG & Slough CCG to become The East Berkshire CCG.
What are Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)?
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) were set up by the Health and Social Care Act of 2012 as part of a major restructuring of NHS service delivery. Lead by clinicians, CCGs are responsible for buying health services for the local area such as:
- Hospital services
- Urgent Care services
- Rehabilitation Care
- Most Community Health services
- Mental Health and Learning Disability services
As well as researching and understanding the health needs of the local population, it is the responsibility of the CCG to monitor how a service they have commissioned is being delivered. CCGs do not commission Primary Care.
