About The CCG

Castle Point and Rochford CCG is a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in south east Essex. We have recently been shortlisted as 'CCG of the Year' in the 2016 HSJ Awards, for more information, click here.  A CCG is a group of GPs and clinicians who commission (buy) health services for their local communities. NHS Castle Point and Rochford CCG is one of 65 CCGs in the country, (the only CCG in the East of England), to be authorised to assume full responsibility for co-commissioning general practice services from 1 April 2015. Our role is to specify outcomes that we want to achieve for our population, and then contract with providers to provide care to achieve those outcomes. We are committed to ensuring the provision of local, high quality services that meet the specific needs of our population.

The area we cover

Our catchment area is sub-divided into two district localities, namely Castle Point Borough Council area and Rochford District Council area. We serve a population of approximately 182,000 and approximately 22 -24% of our population are over 65, with over 75s amounting to just over 9%.

Our Values

Our values describe how we work and the guiding principles that underpin all of our decision making processes. We are committed to behaving and working in this way in all areas of our business.

  2. We are prepared to do things differently to improve care.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a healthier and more sustainable future for people in Castle Point and Rochford.

Through commissioning the right care in the right place we hope that over time we will see a shift from our current position where many people are acutely unwell and require complex care in hospital settings, to more people taking responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, with more care being delivered in the community and closer to patients’ homes.

Our corporate objectives

Our corporate objectives set out what we want to achieve for our local community. We will:

  1. Ensure quality services with a valued workforce
  2. Involve and listen to those affected by decisions
  3. Work better, together as a health system to ensure sustainability
  4. Deliver constitutional standards and manage the delivery of health services within our budget.
