Who We Are

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for buying health services for around 120,000 people in our area. Those services include medicines, hospital operations, emergency care, mental health care and some community services.

We “buy” services from a range of “providers” such as York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Yorkshire Ambulance Service and Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust.

In 2018-19 we spent almost £200 million on local health services. There’s more detailed information on our spending, here.

Our CCG represents 12 GP practices and we work with providers and other organisations, like North Yorkshire County Council Public Health, to manage and improve the health and wellbeing of people in our area.

There’s a full list of the services we commission, here, along with descriptions of the services commissioned by other organisations. You can read more about our commitment to “Commission for Sustainable Development” here.
