What we do

What is clinical commissioning?

So that decisions about health services are made as possible to patients, power and responsibility for commissioning services has been devolved to local groups of clinicians.

Your local GP practices have joined up with other health professionals in a Clinical Commissioning Group which is responsible for "commissioning" - planning, designing and paying for your NHS services. This includes GP and other primary care services, planned and emergency hospital care, rehabilitation,  most community health services and mental health and learning disability services.

GPs and other clinicians are responsible for engaging with local people to ensure that the services they are paying for meet your needs.

NHS England oversees the performance of all Clinical Commissioning Groups. In Hertfordshire NHS England also directly commissions pharmacy, opticians and dentists, and other specialised services.

HealthWatch Hertfordshire - which has replaced the old Local Involvement Networks (LINks) - also promotes public engagement in the NHS, comments on changes to local services, and acts as an advocate for complaints, and delivers advice across health and social care.
