What is Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group?
We are responsible for planning, organising and buying NHS-funded healthcare for around 450,000 people who live in the Bedfordshire Borough and Central Bedfordshire areas.
Who is involved?
BCCG is run by GPs, nurses, hospital doctors and other clinicians – the people you see whenever you come into contact with the NHS. All 48 GP practices in Bedfordshire are members of the CCG which is divided into five areas, which we call localities. These are: Bedford, Chiltern Vale, Leighton Buzzard, Ivel Valley and West Mid Bedfordshire and all of the 48 GP practices in Bedfordshire are members.
You can read more about how BCCG is organised in our constitution. It explains how we operate, make decisions and our governance structures and processes.
You can also read our operational delivery plan ‘The Bedfordshire Plan for Patients 2016 – 2017’ which sets out the commissioning projects and activities to be undertaken by BCCG. It describes how we assure our commissioning functions.
