About Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group
NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is made up of 97 GP practices and we cover a population of around 870,000 people.
Our population extends from some of the most affluent neighbours of Leeds to some of the most poorest. Our key challenges are to tackle health inequalities and unwanted variations in quality of care, a growing elderly population with more long term conditions, for example diabetes, high blood pressure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The Clinical Commissioning Group is a key partner in the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership, which highlights how the Clinical Commissioning Group will be working on a regional level to address the three gaps identified in the NHS Five Year Forward View. These are; health and wellbeing; care and quality; and funding and efficiency.
We work with a range of partners to help us met our objectives as well as supporting the work we are doing as a city on the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Leeds. We have a seat on the Health and Wellbeing Board to help us achieve our ambition of Leeds being a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest, improve their health the fastest.
We are also developing the Leeds Plan, which is being led by Leeds City Council and is supported by local NHS organisations and the third sector (voluntary and community services). We want to build on the work we are doing with the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership, to deliver positive changes at a local level. This means we can look at local and regional solutions to the challenges that face us and help us plan for the future, working closely with citizens in our city.
