About the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group


NHS services on the Isle of Wight have undergone a period of considerable change as the reforms included within the new Health and Social Care Bill 2012 have been implemented and embedded on the Island. 

In April 2012 the Isle of Wight NHS Primary Care Trust was separated into two distinct organisations - the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (IWCCG) (commissioning), and a NHS Trust (provider services). Even though both are now standalone organisations, the IWCCG will continue working closely with the NHS Trust as the main provider of healthcare services, supporting it to achieve Foundation Trust status by 2014.

As a part of this re-organisation, Public Health functions have now been integrated and made the responsibility of  the Isle of Wight Council.

Following a successful application to be authorised by the national NHS Commissioning Board as an independent statutory organisation. On the 1st April 2013 the IWCCG was authorised to take responsibility for commissioning healthcare services on the Isle of Wight, with the exception of specialist commissioning. 

The IWCCG is made up of a number of bodies and committees that input into and direct the organisation at various levels from developing frontline care pathways to strategic planning. Feeding into this the IWCCG seeks to actively involve local partner organisations, patients and the public through creating opportunities for participation.
