NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is the local headquarters for the NHS in Devon.
NHS Devon CCG are the organisation responsible for planning, commissioning (or buying) and developing healthcare services for the 1.2 million people who live in Devon.
The CCG is a membership body, made up of all the GP practices in Devon. They are led by a governing body of healthcare professionals – including local GPs, nurses, consultants and lay members – who ensure that they commission safe and effective healthcare services, within their budget.
NHS Devon CCG – the fifth largest in England – formed on 1 April 2019, following the merger of the two previous CCGs in Devon: NHS Northern, Eastern and Western Devon CCG and NHS South Devon and Torbay CCG.
Devon is the fourth largest county in England with a diverse and growing population. It includes the cities of Plymouth and Exeter, more than 45 towns – both rural and urban – and several hundred parishes.
