Welcome to NHS Blackburn with Darwen Clinical Commissioning Group’s website. As a clinical commissioning group (CCG) we are responsible for commissioning or “buying” healthcare and wellbeing services for the people of Blackburn with Darwen.
NHS Blackburn with Darwen CCG is wholly supportive of partnership working and as such is an active participant in the Staff Partnership Forum facilitated by NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit. The CCG utilises this forum as a vehicle and mechanism to support proactive staff engagement, consultation and, where appropriate, negotiation. The CCG does not employ anyone who undertakes relevant union official duties as outlined in the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 and therefore no time is released from this employer in relation to official duties. The CCG liaises and works with CSU TU representatives and area/regional representatives from those recognised unions whose time will be recorded with their employing authority.
As from 1 April 2013, we have taken on full commissioning responsibilities from Blackburn with Darwen Care Trust Plus.
NHS Blackburn with Darwen CCG is made up of 25 GP practices located within the borough boundaries.
