How the CCG uses information - what you need to know
NHS South Norfolk CCG is a local membership organisation led by family doctors that is responsible for planning and paying for healthcare services. We do not provide healthcare in the same way as a GP Practice or hospital. Our role is to make sure the appropriate NHS care is in place for the people of South Norfolk, within the budget we have.
The CCG is responsible for buying (also known as ‘commissioning’) health services from healthcare providers and suppliers who offer non-standard services for the people of South Norfolk, as well as directly providing some health services such as Personal Health Budgets and Individual Funding Requests. All GP practices in South Norfolk are members of the CCG and our role is to make sure that appropriate care is in place for the people of South Norfolk today and in the future.
As an NHS organisation, the CCG operates at a number of different levels in regards to processing of personal data.
