About us - NHS Bury CCG
Bury’s new Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has taken over the leadership of the local NHS in Bury. The NHS Commissioning Board authorised NHS Bury CCG to commission healthcare services for the people of Bury.
CCGs puts doctors, nurses, other clinicians and partners in the driving seat to make decisions about local health services, resulting in a clinically-led NHS delivering the best possible care for patients.
NHS Bury CCG represents all 33 GP practices in Bury, serving a population of around 190,000 patients. NHS Bury CCG's Governing Body is supported by a Clinical Cabinet of doctors, nurses, consultants, and other partners including a representative from the Local Authority, to inform the design and purchasing of local health services.
We are responsible for:
- Engaging with local people to improve health and wellbeing.
- Working with Bury Council and other partners to improve health and wellbeing.
- Ensuring that a wide range of health services are available.
- Ensuring NHS monies are spent wisely.
Our vision is to continually improve Bury’s Health and Wellbeing by listening to you and working together across boundaries.
