About us

Thurrock Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for the commissioning and delivery of local health care services.

The CCG buys healthcare from hospitals, community and mental health services and some specialist services (service contracts with GPs, dentists, pharmacists and opticians are managed by NHS England).

Driven by clinicians, the CCG is supported by a wide range of professionals and strategic partners, to commission and deliver joined up seamless quality services to the public, patients and carers of Thurrock.

Our vision is that the health and care experience for the people of Thurrock will be improved as a result of our working together. To achieve this vision, we aim to design services within available resources around the agreed needs of people and by working collaboratively with our partners. We are aware that local diversity of Thurrock, which has a population of about 164,000, represents a particular challenge for user involvement. This makes it all the more important to include those members of our population whose views may not be captured by the more traditional forms of engagement.

We are determined to hear and understand what people think of health services and we are committed to obtaining your feedback, which could help to shape future commissioning. Visit our Get Involved page to find out how you can have your say.

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA) is the tool that commissioners for health and local authorities use to help them to plan services for their populations. View the JSNA for Thurrock.
