Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)

NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is the local headquarters for the NHS in Devon.

They are the organisation responsible for planning, commissioning (or buying) and developing healthcare services for the 1.2 million people who live in Devon.

The CCG is a membership body, made up of all the GP practices in Devon. We are led by a governing body of healthcare professionals – including local GPs, nurses, consultants and lay members – who ensure that we commission safe and effective healthcare services, within our budget.

NHS Devon CCG – the fifth largest in England – formed on 1 April 2019, following the merger of the two previous CCGs in Devon: NHS Northern, Eastern and Western Devon CCG and NHS South Devon and Torbay CCG.

Thier aim is to improve people’s lives in Devon – wherever they live – to reduce health inequalities and make sure we can deliver these services for the long term.

From 1 April 2019, the CCG took on responsibility for commissioning general practice (previously commissioned by NHS England). This enables the CCG to deliver better, more joined-up care for patients, closer to home.

As a key partner in the Devon Sustainability and Transformation Partnership, they work closely with local hospital trusts, mental health trusts, councils and others to help achieve the best possible outcomes for local people.

They involve local patients, carers and the public, and organisations such as the Healthwatches in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay, to help us better understand local need and commission high-quality care that is safe, effective and focused on the patient experience – as set out in the CCG’s constitution and the NHS Constitution.

CCGs are accountable to the Secretary of State for Health, through NHS England, which has responsibility for the other third of the NHS healthcare spend (for example, dental services and some specialised hospital services).
