Overview

Lambeth CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) is responsible for commissioning or ‘buying’ healthcare services for the people who live and work in the borough of Lambeth.

Clinical Commissioning Groups or ‘CCGs’ were created in 2013 after NHS reforms and are made up of all the local GP surgeries. The role of an NHS CCG is to commission NHS services on behalf of the people who live in the area.

The GP practices in Lambeth work together with partners in the local NHS – pharmacists, dentists, hospitals and mental health providers, Lambeth Council and local community groups, to improve health and wellbeing, reduce health inequalities, and ensure everyone has equal access to healthcare services.

They are responsible for spending £525m each year on hospital and community health services for patients, in a way which ensures the most effective services are available. Along with commissioning services, they are also responsible for monitoring how well these services are provided.
