As a CCG we com­mis­sion (buy) local health ser­vices for Burn­ley, Hyn­d­burn, Pen­dle, Ribble Val­ley (exclud­ing Lon­gridge) and Rossendale. We receive a bud­get from the Depart­ment of Health to plan and pay for most local NHS ser­vices.

We do not man­age local NHS hos­pi­tals, which are inde­pen­dent trusts, how­ever we do pay for many of the ser­vices they offer.
