Who we are

We are the NHS organisation responsible for shaping healthcare services for the 900,000 people who live in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is made up of local GPs and health professionals from our 85 practices, working together with other clinicians and patients to decide how the local NHS budget should be spent. Our members use their understanding and expertise to guide the buying and planning of the services we need to give our population the best possible care. 

Our mission

Our mission is to make health better for all the people of Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. 

We live in a vibrant, dynamic area that is a truly great place to live. We’re home to a diverse and growing population, many of whom enjoy a fantastic quality of life. However, 17.5% of our community live in some of the most deprived areas of England. We’re dedicated to improving the health of our whole population. Our work is devoted to reducing health inequalities and ensuring NHS services are fit for the long term. 

Our values

We’re guided by clear values that help us lead healthcare in our area and make the right decisions on behalf of our people. 

We aim to always:

  • Put people’s needs at the heart of our decision making
  • Ensure the voice of local people shapes what we do
  • Be open and transparent, doing what we say we will
  • Work as good partners and system leaders
  • Value our staff
  • Seek best value in the application of our resources

Our Governing Body

A governing body of 15 people lead the CCG. Members include representatives from our GP member practices (GPs and a practice manager), executive directors, two lay members, a secondary care doctor and a registered senior nurse.
