Class 1: Who we are and what we do

How we fit into the NHS structure

We are a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).  Clinical Commissioning Groups are new organisations, run and led by local clinicians, including GPs, nurses and hospital doctors, that have taken over the responsibility for planning, organising and purchasing NHS-funded healthcare for the people of Bedfordshire.  CCGs took on some of the duties of the former Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) when the PCTs were abolished, but also have new responsibilities. 

All GP practices in Luton are members of Luton CCG.  You can find out more about how CCGs fit into the NHS structure here.
