NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group is the largest clinically-led commissioning organisation in England. It was officiated by NHS England on 1 April 2018, following a merger of NHS Birmingham CrossCity CCG, NHS Birmingham South Central CCG and NHS Solihull CCG.
They are responsible for buying health services for 1.3 million people in Birmingham and Solihull, and our budget is in excess of £1.9 billion – almost two per cent of the national NHS resource.
Their ambition is to ensure the best possible and world class healthcare outcomes for everyone in Birmingham and Solihull, whilst upholding its values as a CCG.
Their priorities are to:
- Tackle and reduce health inequalities
- Rebalance investment in health care from crisis management to prevention and early action
- Achieve closer integration between health and social care.
Patients are at the heart of everything they do, and they actively encourage people living in Birmingham and Solihull to get involved and help them shape their plans. They also work with a network of other NHS organisations, independent providers, over 170 GP practices and the third sector, including neighbouring CCGs (such NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG) for people living in West Birmingham.
