Overview

We were established in 2013 with a clear focus on ensuring family doctors and other clinical professionals play a leading role in deciding and directing how our local NHS resources should be used.

We have 30 member GP practices and a budget of just over £365 million for 2017/18 covering services at acute hospitals, community services, GP services and prescribing.  We have the same boundaries as Southampton City Council, covering an area of some 28 square miles.

Every year CCGs are rated by NHS England in a number of areas. In 2017, our overall CCG rating was ‘good’.  This year's results also highlighted a number of key areas for our CCG, including cancer (good), mental health (good) and dementia (outstanding).
