NHS Norfolk and Waveney CCG launch

NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group launched on 1 April 2020. This followed the merger of the CCGs for West Norfolk, North Norfolk, Norwich, South Norfolk, and Great Yarmouth and Waveney.

Clinical Commissioning Groups are responsible for planning local NHS services and holding contracts with organisations such as hospitals that provide direct patient care.

In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, all CCG staff have been diverted from their usual commissioning tasks to support NHS clinical services. For example, some have been redeployed to help manage requests for repeat prescriptions (in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area and parts of King’s Lynn), supporting GP practices to introduce new ways of working and creating capacity in and out of hospitals.

The Chair of the new CCG, Dr. Anoop Dhesi, is a GP in Stalham. He said: “As with all NHS organisations, our focus in Norfolk and Waveney is ensuring the health and care system is resilient and providing the best possible prevention and treatment for people with Coronavirus (COVID-19).

“Our new CCG will hit the ground running and will fulfill its function of providing a strategic control room to support the system response to Coronavirus. The whole of the CCG is directing all its efforts towards supporting frontline clinical services for as long as this situation requires.

“We would like to thank our member GP practices and our CCG staff for their commitment, responsiveness, and hard work during a time of unprecedented change. I’d also like to remind everyone to follow the Government and Public Health England’s instruction to stay home and save lives.”
