Who We Are

NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group is made up of 36 GP practices that are wholly responsible for designing local health services. We cover a population of around 260,000 people.

Clinicians are very much in the driving seat in NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group. Each of our member practices has elected one of their doctors to sit on a Membership Council who determine what West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s priorities should be.

The work of NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group is overseen by a Governing Body which is chaired by a local GP. You can read more about our Governing Body members. You can also access past Governing Body meeting papers.

There are three GP locality groups in west Cheshire. These are Chester City, Ellesmere Port & Neston, and Rural. These groups provide a vital connection to our GP practices, and in turn they provide invaluable input to the Membership Council and to the Governing Body.

Our Clinical Senate has members that include senior doctors from local hospitals, nurses, allied health professionals, adult and children’s social care and public health. The Senate reports to the Governing Body, and has a major influence on the work carried out by the Clinical Commissioning Group.

The work of all of these groups is supported by a team of managers who work in partnership with our clinical leads
