A membership organisation
NHS Doncaster CCG is a membership organisation comprising of 40 GP practices in and around Doncaster. Each GP practice is expected by constitution to have a lead clinician whose role it is to feed into the wider commissioning process and to report back relevant items on the commissioning agenda to their colleagues at their practice.
Doncaster is subdivided into 5 localities, each having two lead GP’s or locality leads. The locality leads are employed by NHS Doncaster CCG to chair locality meetings, sit on the NHS Doncaster CCG board and represent their locality in commissioning developments. The locality leads are also assigned a portfolio to which they are a lead commissioner -
Clinical Commissioning Groups
The Health and Social Care act of 2012 has given rise to dramatic change across the NHS. Not least the dissolution of primary care trusts (PCTs) in favour of CCGs.
CCGs are independent statutory bodies responsible for the commissioning of healthcare within a geographical region. They have been provided with health budgets by NHS England and are responsible for buying healthcare services for patients from healthcare providers including local acute trusts, primary care providers and independent sector providers. Doncaster CCG are responsible for approximately £1m healthcare spend every day. NHS Doncaster CCG comprises of local clinicians working alongside experienced managerial staff and specialised support units.
All GP practices have a responsibility to be associated to a CCG and contribute to commissioning. Indeed, a CCG would not be an entity without its constituents member practices.
Commissioning is not part of the GMS contract.
