Hastings and Rother CCG

CCGs are commissioning organisations formed from general practices. All practices are required to join a CCG. Practices will shape commissioning decisions and hold the CCG to account for decisions made on their behalf. Many CCGs cover a smaller area than the previous PCTs. They are intended to ensure a closer relationship between local people, GPs and commissioning decisions (deciding on what and how they will buy services to meet the health needs of their patients).
Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group brings together 219 GPs, working in 33 practices, who look after more than 183,000 people who live in the area. There are 38 pharmacies within the CCG.
The CCG Address is:
