Commissioning in the NHS is the process of ensuring that the health and care services provided effectively meet the needs of the population.
It is a complex process which involves assessing local needs, prioritising health outcomes, procuring products and services, and managing service providers.
These services are then monitored by commissioners to ensure they deliver both a good quality service for patients and provide value for money.
Examples of who Liverpool CCG commissions service from include GPs, hospitals, and voluntary sector organisations.
Organisations providing services for the population of Liverpool include:
Visit our member practices page for details of all Liverpool GPs, or use the NHS Choices search box on the right of this page to find a practice near to a specific postcode.
To find information about health services and events for parents/carers, young people and children, please visit the Early Help Directory from Liverpool City Council. This includes details of what services are available if you have a child with a learning disability or special educational need.
Liverpool patients also have the option of using One to One Midwives either by referring themselves directly to One to One, or via their GP.
