Clinical Commissioning Group
Ensuring patients receive the care they need, in the right place and at the right time is the top priority for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Partnership of Clinical Commissioning Groups (the Partnership).
The Partnership serves a population of more than one million people and manages a budget of £1.4 billion. It is made up of four clinical commissioning groups from Fareham and Gosport and South Eastern Hampshire, North Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. The CCGs in the Partnership have a single Chief Executive and executive team, with a clinical chair and managing director.
The clinical commissioning groups of Fareham and Gosport, North Hampshire and South Eastern Hampshire established a formal partnership on April 1, 2017. The Isle of Wight CCG joined the Partnership in April 1, 2018.
The aim of the Partnership is to help accelerate improvements in patient care, be more effective and reduce duplication. By working together, the Partnership shares capacity and skills and operates with greater consistency with our partners for the benefit of patients.
The Partnership will:
- Ensure local people have access to timely and high quality care
- Work with patients and our health and care partners to integrate and improve services
- Support and develop our clinicians and staff so they can deliver the best services and support for our communities
Where it makes sense to do so, the Partnership will work at scale to fast-track health improvements across a large area and implement them locally. By working at scale it ensures the limited resources are used wisely, as well as learning from others who have already implemented an improved service/system.
Yet local communities continue to be at the heart of all that we do. We will continue to work with our patients locally to design, develop and deliver services that our localities need.
How else can the public find out about the Partnership and get involved?
Here at the Partnership we are committed to working with the community so people are involved in discussions and decisions that affect health and social care services.
This means getting local people involved at the very beginning of a project, not just asking them what they think of something that’s already been decided. We know that working together with residents results in better, more effective services.
Engagement with patients, carers and the broader public can result in:
- Better outcomes and patient experiences
- Improved services for all
- More effective commissioning and delivery of services
- Increased knowledge of self-care techniques
- Improved understanding of appropriate service use
