About us

Welcome to the NHS South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) website

NHS South Tees CCG is responsible for planning Our areaand buying most NHS services for the 293,000 people of Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland, including the care you receive at hospitals and in the community.
This process is known as commissioning. Since April 2015 we have also had responsibility for commissioning GP services.  Find out more at NHS England Primary Care Commissioning.
The CCG is a membership organisation which includes all 41 GP practices in Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland.

Our Constitution sets out our duties and how we make decisions.

We work in close partnership with those involved in providing care in the area, such as local voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations, Healthwatch, South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Tees Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust, Middlesbrough Borough Council and Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council to make sure that NHS services meet the needs of our population.
