Claremont Medical Centre is part of the Kingston Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), established in response to changes that the Government has made to the way in which the NHS operates. Please see the information below to find about a bit more about the CCG and what you can do to get involved;
The Kingston Clinical Commissioning Group is made up of the all the GP practices in Kingston working alongside health practitioners from nursing, pharmacy and secondary care. We have come together to put patients first and improve health services in the borough.
We were formed to test out a new way of managing health service budgets. Since April 2011 we've had delegated responsibility for planning and allocating most of the funding for hospital, community and mental health services in Kingston.
We want local people to feel heard, listened to and cared for, and we believe that by using our clinical knowledge and close working relationships with patients, we can make a difference.
