Learn more about the role of the CCG and how it fits in with other NHS organisations.

Our role Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was formed in early 2011 after the Health and Social Care Act announced the abolition of primary care trusts and introduced new organisations led by GPs. Initially operating in shadow form under the guidance of the outgoing primary care trust, the CCG officially took over responsibility  in April 2013 for planning and managing health care for Leicester city’s population, which is almost 330,000 people .

Leicester City CCG looks after a budget of around £469 million per year, to plan and manage healthcare for the local population and work with partners to address poor health in the city. The services that it is responsible for include primary care (the services you receive at your GP practice), hospital treatment, rehabilitation services, urgent and emergency care, community health services, mental health and learning disability services.
