NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group was set up by the NHS to take over most of the duties of Primary Care Trusts.
Clinical Commissioning Groups do not provide any health services directly, but buy health services from providers of healthcare, such as Hospital Trusts, Mental Health Trusts and community organisations.
NHS West London CCG is co-terminous with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) and covers the Queen’s Park and Paddington area of Westminster City Council (WCC). The map below illustrates the geographical spread of the CCG and Commissioning Learning Sets.
On 1 April 2012 NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group started work in shadow form, beginning to make decisions on how NHS budgets should be spent. The CCG was given full control as a commissioning organisation on 1 April 2013.
NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group works in partnership with local people to improve the health and wellbeing of the population of Westminster. As a GP commissioning board, West London Clinical Commissioning Group work on behalf of patients and the public to deliver excellent health care services in the borough.
