East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is the organisation responsible for commissioning (planning, designing and paying for) our NHS services. The CCG is made up of local GPs and health professionals, working together with other clinicians and patients, to decide how the local NHS budget of £611m should be spent.
The CCG serves over half a million people (552,900) registered at 60 GP Practices across east and north Hertfordshire. The GPs understand the health needs of their patients, and they believe this local approach to commissioning helps ensure good quality services that meet the needs of the population.
The CCG’s mission is:
The CCG are one of six localities; Lower Lea Valley, North Herts, Stevenage Group; Upper Lea Valley, Welwyn Hatfield and Stort Valley and Villages.
There are six practices in the Stort Valley and Villages locality, covering the areas of Sawbridgeworth, Bishop's Stortford and Much Hadham; providing care for a population of 58,000.
Most of the health budget is spent on acute hospital care which includes emergency treatment, planned operations, tests and investigations.
The locality budget for 2012/13 is £58.4m which is used to fund the following services for our patients:
