Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is a clinically-led organisation made up of GPs who, alongside other health colleagues, are responsible for commissioning (planning and buying) high quality health services for the people of Manchester.
Covering 91 GP surgeries – from Blackley to Burnage, and Chorlton to Crumpsall – Manchester CCG is dedicated to commissioning high quality services to improve the health of its growing population.
The GPs are the link between their patients and a wide range of health services, so are perfectly placed to make commissioning decisions reflecting the specific needs and priorities of their patients.

From Three CCGs to One
From April 2013 to April 2017, NHS commissioning in Manchester was split in to three localities – North, Central and South Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), which enabled a neighbourhood focus.
With more and more citywide working, the three CCGs decided to merge on 1 April 2017 in order to use resources more effectively and coordinate citywide plans. You may therefore come across some legacy documents which refer to North, Central or South Manchester CCGs.
A New Partnership
Manchester CCG has entered in to a partnership agreement with Manchester City Council in order to form ‘Manchester Health and Care Commissioning’ (MHCC). This will help to ensure integrated health and social care services for our population. MHCC will act as a single commissioner for the city.
