NHS Leeds West Clinical Commissioning Group (6/02/2013)
The NHS Leeds West Clinical Commissioning Group (LWCCG) will from April 2013 become the new statutory NHS organisation responsible for local health budgets in our area. Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are groups of GPs that are responsible for planning and designing local health services in England. They will do this by 'commissioning' or buying health and care services including:
- Planned hospital care
- Urgent and emergency care
- Rehabilitation care
- Community health services
- Mental health and learning disability services
To do this CCGs will work with patients and health and social care partners (e.g. local hospitals, local authorities, local community groups etc) to ensure services meet local needs. CCG boards are made up of GPs from the local area and at least one registered nurse and one secondary care specialist doctor. All GP practices have to belong to a Clinical Commissioning Group. The Clinical Commissioning Groups are accountable to the NHS Commissioning Board at a national level. The NHS Commissioning Board is a new body that will make sure that CCGs have the capacity and capability to successfully commission services for their local population and also meet their financial responsibilities.
NHS 111. The New Out Of Hours Service (5/02/2013)
Starting on Tuesday 5th March all West Yorkshire Out Of Hours calls for General Practice will be dealt with via NHS 111 with patients needing further clinical assessment by a doctor being transferred to Local Care Direct. If you ring the practice when it is closed you will hear an answer phone message advising you to ring 111 in order to access the GP out of hours service. Unfortunately we are not allowed to transfer you directly as this would mean patients would incur phone costs because 111 is a free call. Up till the 5th March 2013 please ring the surgery direct or use 0345 605 99 99.
