Clinical Commissioning Group

Posterngate Surgery is part of the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group.

In their role as a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) they are responsible for planning and buying health services for the Vale of York area. This process is called ‘commissioning’.

The CCG assesses local health needs, creates plans to prioritise and meet these needs and then pays for these services to be delivered to local people. They buy services from local hospitals, clinics and community organisations to provide these services to the local population.

With local GPs and their Governing Body, the CCG make decisions about health services based on the feedback received from patients and carers and this work ensures the services they plan and buy are shaped by the views of the local population.
