Who we are and what we do

Who we are and what we do

NHS North Lincolnshire CCG was established as part of the major changes to the NHS set out in the 2010 White Paper Equity and Excellence - Liberating the NHS which became law under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

In April 2013, Primary Care Trusts were abolished under the 2012 Act and Clinical Commissioning Groups became responsible for commissioning or buying health and care services including:

  • Elective hospital care
  • Rehabilitation care
  • Urgent and emergency care
  • Most community health services
  • Mental health and learning disability services

NHS North Lincolnshire CCG is overseen by NHS England, which is a national body also formed under the 2012 Act. Local offices of NHS England oversee CCGs and also manage primary care commissioning, including holding GP practices NHS contracts.

Further information about the CCG, it's roles and responsibilities, functions and general duties can be found in the NHS North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s Constitution which can be found here on the Publications webpage

The NHS Constitution For England

The NHS Constitution has been created to protect the NHS and make sure it will always do the things it was set up to do in 1948 - to provide high-quality healthcare that’s free and for everyone.

The NHS Constitution will also make sure that no government can change the way the NHS works without getting the approval of staff, patients and the public. The Constitution is a promise that the NHS will always be there for you. 

NHS Five Year Forward View

The NHS Five Year Forward View was published on 23 October 2014 and sets out a vision for the future of the NHS. It has been developed by the partner organisations that deliver and oversee health and care services including NHS England, Public Health England, Monitor, Health Education England, the Care Quality Commission and the NHS Trust Development Authority. Patient groups, clinicians and independent experts have also provided their advice to create a collective view of how the health service needs to change over the next five years if it is to close the widening gaps in the health of the population, quality of care and the funding of services.
