The Health and Social Care Bill decided that GP involvement would become more formalised, by introducing Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). 
CCGs are clinically led groups that include all GP Practices in their geographical area. The aim of this is to give GPs and other clinicians the power to influence commissioning decisions for their patients.

We are responsible for identifying the specific health needs of people in Cumbria, and ensuring that these needs are met.We receive an annual NHS budget for Cumbria from the Department of Health and use this to plan and deliver NHS services including: acute (big) hospitals, community hospitals, community based health services and mental health services.We do not commission Primary Care in Cumbria (GPs, Opticians, Dentists and Pharmacies). This is commissioned by NHS England. 

As a Clinical Commissioning Group we do not manage hospitals or community and mental health services, but we work very closely with providers to oversee how they are run and work together to integrate primary, secondary and community services.
