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.
We are responsible for buying health services for 1.3m people in Birmingham and Solihull, with 170 practices, and our budget is in excess of £1.9 billion.
Patients are at the heart of everything we do, and we actively encourage people living in Birmingham and Solihull to get involved and help us shape our plans. We also work with a network of other NHS organisations, independent providers, GP practices and the third sector, including neighbouring CCGs (such NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG) for people living in West Birmingham.
Our ambition is to ensure the best possible and world class healthcare outcomes for everyone in Birmingham and Solihull. Our 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.
The CCG’s Constitution is the foundation of our organisation and clearly describes what we are setting out to achieve, and how we intend to achieve it. The Constitution sets out: who we are as an organisation; who are our membership; how we form our Governing Body and the standards those individuals must uphold; how and when we make decisions; who within the organisation has the delegated authority to make decisions on behalf of the organisation; and how we will manage conflicts of interest.
