Our organisation

We are an ambitious and forward-thinking NHS commissioning organisation that plans and purchases a range of local health services.

We are committed to working with other NHS organisations and partners including Bury Council, the Bury Voluntary Community and Faith Sector and local people to ensure that the services we plan and purchase (commission) are high quality, meet people’s needs and offer good value for money.

During the year 2020/21, we received a budget of £364.5 million which we used to plan and purchase a range of health services including those provided in hospitals, out in the community and for GP (primary care) services for our population of around 190,000 patients.

We have made significant progress to become One Commissioning Organisation with Bury Council, bringing together our commissioning functions to create the right environment to plan care and make decisions together to improve services, reduce inequalities and support people to remain well for longer.

Our Member Practices

CCGs have clinicians taking the lead on making decisions about local health services.  We are committed to giving local health professionals the freedom to respond, innovate and develop services in a way that best meets local needs.

Our GP practices, known as our ‘Member Practices’, work with us to achieve a healthier Bury by commissioning services that meet local needs.

Read more about the CCG and our work in our latest Annual Report (2020/21).

Listening to patient feedback

A key part of the process to plan and purchase a range of services is ensuring that we listen to patient feedback. We want to hear and learn from patient experience and in turn ensure that this influences the way that services are designed and delivered.
