Collectively the four Lincolnshire clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) work together to buy health services, not only for our own area, but the whole of Lincolnshire. This is because residents across the county are able to use the same local hospital, mental health, and community health services. Each CCG takes a lead commissioning role, this means they are responsible for managing the contracts for certain health care services that are delivered across the whole of Lincolnshire.
Lincolnshire West CCG are the lead commissioner for Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), St Barnabas Hospice, Marie Curie, East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EMAS), NHS 111, and the Non Emergency Patient Transport Service.
Lincolnshire East CCG are the lead commissioner for United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT), Northern Lincolnshire And Goole Foundation NHS Trust, and L.I.V.E.S (Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service).
South Lincolnshire CCG are the lead commissioner for Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (PSHFT), and contracts with Ramsay Health Care.
South West Lincolnshire CCG are the lead commissioner for Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation NHS Trust (LPFT), and mental health partnership agreements with Lincolnshire County Council.
Services we do not commission
Public Health was previously commissioned by the NHS in Lincolnshire but the responsibility now sits with Lincolnshire County Council (LCC). LCC are also responsible for commissioning services such as adult social care, carers support, and special educational needs.
