1 July 2022 marks the first official day of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care System (ICS) and Integrated Care Board (ICB).

The ICS is the partnership of local health and care organisations working together to better join up services to improve the health and wellbeing of people in the communities we serve.

The Integrated Care Board (ICB) is the new NHS-led organisation responsible for developing a plan to meet the health needs of our population and the NHS budget, and replaces Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group and Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group.

This website is no longer being updated, but you can access the new Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care System website here.

Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group

Portsmouth NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for commissioning a wide range of NHS services for people who live and work in the city of Portsmouth. The CCG aims to work with organisations providing care to ensure that city residents get the highest quality care possible.

We are clinically-led, and have close relationships with our members – the GP practices serving patients across Portsmouth – and are working closely with our primary care services to manage demand and access, particularly as we head into winter.

We work alongside Portsmouth City Council to improve and integrate NHS and social care services through the Health and Care Portsmouth programme.
