About the CCG
Our organisation is made up of member GP practices, a list of which can be found here. We are an NHS organisation led by clinicians who understand the needs of the community and the impact that local services have on patients' health and wellbeing.
We serve a population of more than 350,000 people in York, Selby, Tadcaster, Easingwold and Pocklington and the surrounding towns, villages and rural areas in the Vale of York.
We commission (plan and design) many of the health services that local patients use including:
- Primary care
- Planned hospital care
- Urgent and emergency care
- Rehabilitation care
- Community health services
- Mental health and learning disability services
Our local authority partners at City of York Council, North Yorkshire County Council and the East Riding of Yorkshire Council are responsible for public health in the Vale of York. The CCG works closely with these public health teams.
Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership
There are more than twenty health and local authority partner organisations in the Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership, including NHS Vale of York CCG, as well as a wide range of stakeholders, not to mention the 1.4 million people that live in an area that covers East Yorkshire, Northern Lincolnshire, York and parts of North Yorkshire.
The Partnership’s aim is for everyone to start well, live well and age well.
It wants everyone in the Humber, Coast and Vale area to have a great start in life and to have the opportunities and support they need to stay healthy and to age well.
To achieve this we are working hard to make the necessary changes to our local health and care system so that it can become better at helping people to stay well for longer and provide good quality treatment and care to those who need it both now and in the future.
The Partnership has its own website which has more information about the work we are involved with.
We've built our vision around what the community has told us:
I want good information to help me plan my care
I only want to tell my story once
I want my care to be coordinated through a key link person
I want to feel safe, and trust my provider
I want fast access to care and support
