North Manchester CCG

The Geography and Population

North Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) covers the geographical wards of Ancoats & Clayton, Bradford, Charlestown, Cheetham, some areas of the City Centre, Crumpsall, Harpurhey, Higher Blackley, Miles Platting & Newton Heath, and Moston in the north of the City of Manchester.

Whilst we cover the area above we are responsible for our relevant population, i.e. people registered with a general practice in the area and people that aren’t but who live in the area. We have a ‘registered’ population of 189,447 (30th September 2012) and this continues to grow. Just under 12% of the population are aged over 65 years old indicating higher needs for health and social care locally. The number of people living in the above wards is set to increase in size by approximately15%.

Based on the wards in North Manchester below is some contextual information:

  • There are high levels of deprivation across North Manchester;
  • Nearly all wards in North East Manchester have higher-than-average rates of cancer mortality;
  • Households in North Manchester wards have lower incomes and higher unemployment rates than the average for Manchester.

This provides us with a significant challenge in achieving our vision.

Our Member Practices

There are 36 practices in the area. In order to engage with them effectively the CCG has split them into three localities – known locally as ‘patches’. The practices in each patch are as follows:

Each of the patches has a Chair that currently sits on the CCG Board to inform decision making and provide a two way communication link with constituent / member practices. During 2012/13 their membership will move to the CCG’s Executive Committee as we move towards becoming an authorised statutory body.

Our Responsibilities

As a sub-committee of NHS Greater Manchester, we have delegated responsibility for the following budget areas:

  • Management: incorporating Board and clinical lead reimbursement, local incentive scheme and development monies;
  • Acute hospitals; and
  • Prescribing.

Whilst there is a city wide approach to many aspects of commissioning, locally we deliver many of the aspects including:

  • Reviewing service provision;
  • Deciding local priorities;
  • Designing services;
  • Shaping the structure of supply and demand; and
  • Managing performance
