Welcome to NHS Newcastle West Clinical Commissioning Group

NHS Newcastle West Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is the statutory health body responsible for planning and buying local NHS care and services to meet the needs of communities in the west of Newcastle.

On 1 April 2015, we will merge with two neighbouring CCGs – Gateshead and Newcastle North and East – to become a single CCG for Newcastle Gateshead.

The three CCGs have worked together as the Newcastle Gateshead Alliance since our inception in 2013, and this change will ensure we are well placed to deliver real improvement in outcomes for patients over the coming years. We will continue to build on our strong partnerships, to ensure we develop the very best care and services for the people of Newcastle and Gateshead, creating local solutions for local communities.
