Overview

NHS Chiltern Clinical Commissioning Group is formed of GP practices across central and southern Buckinghamshire. It serves a population of more than 325,000 registered patients and is the organisation responsible for deciding how around £369m (2016/17) of taxpayers money is spent on healthcare of Buckinghamshire people. The CCG is a clinically-led membership organisation comprising more than 230 GPs working across the 34 GP practices covering the areas of Amersham, Chesham, Wycombe, Wooburn Green and South Buckinghamshire.

In July 2016, Chiltern CCG federated its staff with the team at Aylesbury Vale CCG, the other Clinical Commissioning Group in Buckinghamshire. This move means the CCGs are merged all but in name, to commission health services for the health population of Buckinghamshire as a whole. This has allowed us to provide more joined up services for our patients and to work more efficiently together.

In June 2017 it was announced that Buckinghamshire is to become one of the first Accountable Care Systems in the country. This represents a tremendous opportunity to continue our work with other healthcare partners to ensure that our population benefits from integrated services that can provide the best care possible for our patients.

The CCGs were formed in 2013, in response to the Government’s Health and Social Care Act 2012 and have been authorised by the National Commissioning Board to hold the statutory responsibility to commission services in north Buckinghamshire.
