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.
