As the leader of the local NHS, we are responsible for spending almost £1m a day on healthcare for the city's 262,000 registered patients. We commission (buy and monitor) everything from emergency/A&E care, routine operations, community clinics, health tests and checks, nursing homes, mental health and learning disability services.
We are a clinically-led organisation comprising 49 member GP practices within the city. This means that local family doctors can use all their experience of the needs and wishes of local patients to make decisions about local health services.
Quality and safety is our number one priority. Our vision is for everybody to get the highest quality and appropriate care for their needs, delivered from the right service, when the patient needs it.
