Pindar Creative Release New NHS England CCG Map
28 May 2020
Pindar Creative has released a new NHS England Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Map based on updated boundary data published in April 2020, following NHS England's approval of 18 new CCGs. A total of 74 existing CCGs have merged to form the 18 new CCGs, bringing the current number of CCGs in England to 135.
CCG's are responsible for assessing local needs, deciding strategies, and purchasing services on behalf of the population from providers such as hospitals, clinics, and community health bodies. The resulting mergers range from NHS North Yorkshire CCG formed by the merger of three CCGs and responsible for a largely rural population of 426,821, to NHS Kent and Medway CCG formed by the merger of eight CCGs, with responsibility for a population 1,846,478.
The newly updated map shows Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) as well as CCG boundaries. The seven NHS England Regions are colour-coded, with CCGs working together shown in the same colour. An inset map of CCGs in London, and a CCG list for each region is included showing CCG/STP codes, number of GP practises and population per CCG/STP. The map is available as a printed A1 dry wipe (write on/wipe off) poster, or as a PDF or JPEG for web use or PowerPoint presentations.
While Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are a feature of the English NHS, Pindar Creative has also created maps for showing the structure of NHS Wales, NHS Scotland, and NHS Northern Ireland.
A number of Regional and County CCG Maps have been updated to include new boundary data released in April 2020. In addition to the information shown on the England Commissioning Map, the Regional CCG Maps show the locations of hospitals, while the County CCG Maps include the locations of hospitals and GP practices.
