Who we are and what we do

What, who, how, why, where, when?

How we fit into the NHS Structure

NHS East Riding of Yorkshire CCG has been established as part of the major changes to the NHS set out in the 2010 White Paper Equity and Excellence - Liberating the NHS which became law under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) were established as part of the Health and Social Care Act in 2012, and replaced Primary Care Trusts on 1 April 2013.  CCGs became responsible for commissioning or buying some health and care services including:

  • Elective hospital care
  • Rehabilitation care
  • Urgent and emergency care
  • Most community health services
  • Mental health and learning disability services

NHS East Riding of Yorkshire CCG will be overseen by NHS England, which is a national body formed under the 2012 Act. Local offices of NHS England oversee CCGs and also manage primary care commissioning, including holding GP practices NHS contracts.

Further information about what these changes mean locally and about the CCG's roles and responsibilities, functions and general duties can be found at:

NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s Constitution

Although CCGs became responsible for the commissioning of some health and social care services, there are other organisations who also have responsibility for commissioning these services.  More information about this can be found here.

Delivering the Forward View: NHS Shared Planning Guidance 2016/17 – 2020/21

The leading national health and care bodies in England have come together to publish ‘Delivering the Forward View: NHS Shared Planning Guidance 2016/17 – 2020/21’, setting out the steps to help local organisations deliver a sustainable, transformed health service and improve the quality of care, wellbeing and NHS finances.

It is published by NHS England, NHS Improvement (the new body which will bring together Monitor and the NHS Trust Development Authority), the Care Quality Commission, Public Health England, Health Education England and NICE – the bodies which developed the Five Year Forward View in October 2014.

The planning guidance is backed up by £560 billion of NHS funding, including a new Sustainability and Transformation Fund which will support financial balance, the delivery of the Five Year Forward View, and enable new investment in key priorities.

NHS Five Year Forward View

The NHS Five Year Forward View was published on 23 October 2014 and sets out a vision for the future of the NHS. It has been developed by the partner organisations that deliver and oversee health and care services including NHS England, Public Health England, Monitor, Health Education England, the Care Quality Commission and the NHS Trust Development Authority. Patient groups, clinicians and independent experts have also provided their advice to create a collective view of how the health service needs to change over the next five years if it is to close the widening gaps in the health of the population, quality of care and the funding of services.

NHS Outcomes Framework 2016-17

The NHS Outcomes Framework sets out the outcomes and corresponding indicators that will be used to hold NHS England to account for improvements in health outcomes.

Everyone Counts: Planning for Patients 2014/15 to 2018/19

Everyone Counts: Planning for Patients 2014/15 to 2018/19 is published by NHS England and sets out a framework within which commissioners such as CCGs will need to work with providers and partners in local government to develop strong, robust and ambitious five year plans to secure the continuity of sustainable high quality care for all.

The planning guidance is accompanied by a suite of support tools  intended to assist commissioners with their planning considerations to maximise the best possible outcomes for their local communities.

Equity and Excellence - Liberating the NHS
The NHS White Paper, Equity and excellence: Liberating the NHS, sets out the Government's long-term vision for the future of the NHS.

The NHS Constitution For England
The NHS Constitution has been created to protect the NHS and make sure it will always do the things it was set up to do in 1948 - to provide high-quality healthcare that’s free and for everyone.

The NHS Constitution will also make sure that no government can change the way the NHS works without getting the approval of staff, patients and the public. The Constitution is a promise that the NHS will always be there for you.
