Across the country, there are over 200 CCGs. There are several CCGs that border West Hampshire, which are:
- North Hampshire CCG
- South Eastern Hampshire CCG
- Fareham and Gosport CCG
- Southampton City CCG
- Dorset CCG
- Wiltshire CCG
Our aim is to work closely with our neighbours to serve our populations in the best way in common areas, especially those who live on the borders. The CCGs that cover the ‘Hampshire County Council’ area alongside us are North Hampshire CCG, North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG, South Eastern Hampshire CCG, and Fareham and Gosport CCG.
We will also be working closely with these CCGs on matters linked to the wider Hampshire area and social care so we can ensure alignment, sharing and good continuity for Hampshire residents.
Mid Hampshire Healthcare (a GP Federation) was created to enhance the delivery of healthcare services to over 213,000 patients within the local area. 18 GP practices came together with the same aim. To improve and create community based services that are of a high quality, efficient, convenient, reliable and safe.
Health and Wellbeing Boards provide a forum for the NHS, public health and social care, elected representatives, and representatives of Healthwatch, to discuss how to work together to better the health and wellbeing of the people in their area. As a result, patients and the public should experience more joined-up services from the NHS and local councils in the future.
By involving democratically elected representatives and patient representatives the aim is to significantly strengthen the democratic legitimacy of commissioning decisions, as well as providing a forum for challenge and discussion. The Health and Social Care Bill mandates a minimum membership of:
- one local elected representative
- a representative of the local Healthwatch organisation
- a representative of each local clinical commissioning group
- the local authority director for adult social services
- the local authority director for children’s services
- the director of public health for the local authority
There are many council-led health events and initiatives, to find out about how your local council is helping you lead a healthy lifestyle, you can visit their websites.
There are six councils covering the West Hampshire CCG area that we work in partnership with. These include:
- Hampshire County Council
- Winchester City Council
- Eastleigh Borough Council
- Test Valley Borough Council
- New Forest District Council
- Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council
Hampshire County Council also hosts Connect to Support: Manage your care and wellbeing, stay independent and connect to your community
Healthwatch gives people a powerful voice, to help everyone get the very best out of health and social care; both locally and nationally. Across England there are 152 local Healthwatch groups, making sure that the experiences of local people are heard and taken seriously – whether it’s improving services today or helping to shape them for tomorrow.
Healthwatch Hampshire is an independent body, acting for the benefit of the community to ensure that views of the public are heard and taken into account. In Hampshire, Healthwatch is led by the charity Help and Care, and two other partner organisations; Community Action Hampshire (a support body for the voluntary and community sectors) and Citizens’ Advice Hampshire.
Local Healthwatch also supports people who would like to make a complaint and report concerns back to Healthwatch England; who can then recommend the Care Quality Commission (CQC) take action. The CQC is the national, independent regulator of all health and social care services across England which ensures national standards are being met.
Healthwatch England works with the local Healthwatch groups to build an overall picture of common views and experiences across the country; which will help to better plan and run services. This national vision gives an oversight of what matters to us most in health and social care in England.
The Wessex Local Medical Committee represents GPs and practices across the counties of Dorset, Hampshire & the Isle of Wight and Wiltshire whilst also providing services to the Islands of Jersey and Guernsey. It offers advice and support to GPs and their businesses and is involved locally, regionally and nationally in representing General Practice with a large number of health bodies and political organisations.
There is a wide range of voluntary sector organisations across West Hampshire that provide vital support to patients and local health services. We aim to work closely with these groups to provide joined-up care and support. Although there are hundreds of groups across our patch, our main links are with the councils of voluntary services who act as representatives for their local area, as follows:
NHS England plays a key role in the Government’s vision to modernise the health service and secure the best possible outcomes for patients; placing patients and the public at the heart of decision-making. The central role of NHS England is to improve patient outcomes by supporting, developing and performance managing clinical commissioning groups. NHS England also takes responsibility for commissioning specialised services that can only be provided efficiently and effectively at a national or a regional level.
