Four CCGs in Hampshire have formed a partnership with a budget of more than £1bn.

The partnership, which was established at the beginning of April, will oversee commissioning for 850,000 people as it works across two sustainability and transformation plans – the Hampshire and Isle of Wight STP, and the Frimley Health and Care System STP.

The four CCGs will also be working closely with Hampshire County Council.

Four CCGs in Hampshire have formed a partnership with a budget of more than £1bn.

The partnership, which was established at the beginning of April, will oversee commissioning for 850,000 people as it works across two sustainability and transformation plans – the Hampshire and Isle of Wight STP, and the Frimley Health and Care System STP.

The four CCGs will also be working closely with Hampshire County Council.

Dr David Chilvers, chair of NHS Fareham and Gosport CCG said on behalf of all four CCG clinical chairs: ‘Working together is allowing us to share expertise, to be more effective and to reduce duplication.’

He added: ‘As a result we are able to speed up the improvement of services for our patients.’

The four CCGs now share a single chief executive, Maggie MacIsaac, who is the accountable officer for all four CCGs.

Ms MacIsaac joined the NHS as a graduate nurse and has worked in many sectors of the NHS at a very senior level, locally and regionally.

Most recently she was the chief officer of NHS North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG, a role she has been in since July 2012.

Ms MacIsaac said: ‘Working together as a partnership is already helping us to make a difference to the delivery of care for our local communities, and simplifying how we work with Hampshire County Council.’
