Local Clinical Commissioning Group dedicated to delivering the best health and well-being for everyone in York
On 1st April 2013, local clinicians from across the Vale of York will officially took on responsibility for the planning and purchasing of the vast majority of health services across the area. This includes hospital care, mental health and community services.
As part of a major restructure of the NHS, set out in the Government’s Health and Social Care Act, NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will took charge of the local NHS, from the former Primary Care Trust, NHS North Yorkshire and York.
Led by a number of local GPs and other health professionals, the CCG is best placed to understand the needs of local patients and is dedicated to working with local people to ensure they have access to the right services, in the right place, at the right time.
The CCGs represents patients registered with 35 GP Practices located in places such York, Selby, Tadcaster, Easingwold, Pocklington and parts of Ryedale.
Dr Mark Hayes, Chief Clinical Officer for NHS Vale of York CCG says:
“We’re very excited about our future as a commissioner and we are keen to make a positive difference to patients and to the way our local health and social care systems work together.
“We know we have some challenges to overcome, however we want our residents to be confident in our ability to manage these challenges and to make the right decisions on their behalf. We are looking forward to working with the public to develop our plans further and realise our vision of delivering the best health and wellbeing for everyone in the Vale of York,”
