About The CCG

Castle Point and Rochford CCG is a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in south east Essex. A CCG is a group of GPs and clinicians who commission (buy) health services for their local communities. Our role is to specify outcomes that we want to achieve for our population, and then contract 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 Vision and Values

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

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.

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.
