CCG configuration in Birmingham

Two proposed clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Birmingham (NHS Birmingham CrossCity and NHS NorthEast Birmingham) have made a pre-application change to their configuration to become NHS Birmingham CrossCity CCG.

The practices of NorthEast Birmingham CCG will become a locality of Birmingham CrossCity CCG and focus on supporting strategic delivery and local commissioning priorities. This move makes the combined CCG the fourth largest in the country in terms of population, with 117 GP practices looking after more than 730,000 people in the city.

As a result, the number of proposed CCGs in England has reduced from 212 to 211 and we will be updating the documents on the NHS Commissioning Board website shortly in line with this change.
