What we do
Clinical Commissioning allows decisions about health and adult social care in North East Lincolnshire to be made by the NHS clinicians closest to local people, family GPs.
NHS North East Lincolnshire CCG looks at what health and adult social services people on our patch need and make them available by buying (commissioning) services from other organisations (providers).
We want local people to receive high-quality, consistent and joined-up care whenever they need it.
Thanks to our unique way of working in partnership with North East Lincolnshire Council we have already made significant steps to improve local services and continue to do so.
Our health and adult social care budgets have been combined for some years and we are continuing to work in this way because it allows us to provide more consistent care for patients.
The services we buy include:
- hospital care
- rehabilitative care (physiotherapy, occupational therapy)
- urgent and emergency care (including out-of-hours doctors and community care)
- community health services (district nursing, end of life care, dementia care, health visitors)
- mental health and learning disability services
- adult social care support including help in the home such as washing a cleaning, community support, equipment etc
- support for carers
To make sure we’re investing in the right care that meets the needs of local people we involve people from a forum of volunteers in the decision-making process.
There are a number of ways people can help us to shape the future of health and adult social care services, find out more about how to get involved in the CCG’s work here
