Patient and public participation is at the very heart of the way Corby CCG operates.
Join the conversation and have your say
There are currently two Clinical Commissioning Groups in Northamptonshire – NHS Corby CCG and NHS Nene CCG – planning and paying for NHS services for people living in different parts of the county.
The organisations have always worked together, and this has progressed significantly in the past 12 months. We now have a shared committee structure, shared staffing, and one senior team headed up by a single Joint Chief Executive Officer, Toby Sanders.
Building on this collaboration, both CCGs’ Governing Bodies have now agreed to take the next step and explore the possibility of moving towards forming a single Northamptonshire CCG from April 2020. Known as transition, this will involve disestablishing the existing CCGs to create one new one.
Many other parts of the country are going through a similar process. In going down this path locally, we’re following national NHS policy to achieve some real benefits:
- Supporting the people of Northamptonshire to access the best health and care services
- Enabling us to deliver operational efficiencies that can support improvement sin patient care.
Whatever the future commissioning landscape might look like, our decision-making processes will remain clinically-led, locally driven, and informed by our local patients, public, carers and other stakeholders.

Developing a new strategy for Communications and Engagement
We’re now developing a new joint strategy with Nene CCG to cover all of Northamptonshire. Our aim is to give you clear opportunities to get involved with your local NHS in a way which allows you to see how your views have shaped things – and we want your input into how we do that.
The new strategy will outline the Northamptonshire CCGs’ aspirations, principles and approach to ensuring good communications and engagement with everyone who has a stake in our NHS. It will be supported by a detailed plan on what we will actually do to make this happen.
As we started work on this strategy, we talked to partners, stakeholders and people across Northamptonshire about what we are doing now – what works and where we could improve our conversations with you.
As part of this we recently ran a survey and would like to thank everyone who responded to this. A summary of what you told us can be found here.
