NHS Wokingham Clinical Commissioning Group (the CCG) is a group of GP practices in the Borough of Wokingham, Berkshire. The CCG is responsible for commissioning (buying-in) and managing most of your hospital and community health care services.
From April 2013, we became responsible for planning and purchasing your local health services. Commissioning is the process of assessing local health needs, identifying the services required to meet those needs and then buying those services from a wide range of healthcare providers, which can include hospitals, community-based services, ambulance services and a variety of voluntary and community sector organisations.
Our vision is the continuation of high quality care for our local population and to encourage innovation and different ways of working. By 'different ways of working' we mean identifying opportunities for better team working, where this will lead to an improvement in service delivery.
"Our organisation has safety, quality, clinical leadership and engagement running through its veins, and we are driven by a relentless commitment to improve services and health outcomes for the people we serve."
Dr Johan Zylstra, Chairman of NHS Wokingham CCG
