NHS Surrey Heath CCG
NHS Surrey Heath Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is made up of the eight GP practices (10 surgeries) in Surrey Heath and Ash Vale and spends around £110m on community and hospital care.
The CCG's vision is to improve the health of local people by commissioning (buying) hospital and community health care to meet the needs of the population.
As one of the smallest CCGs in the country, serving a local population of 90,000, Surrey Heath CCG is well-placed to work closely with the community to improve health and wellbeing.
The practices are based in Camberley, Bagshot, Lightwater, Frimley and Ash Vale. The CCG Governing Body includes a GP from every surgery.

Review of community services
Local people are being asked to help shape future NHS-funded community-based (non hospital) services for chronic and persistent pain, and musculoskeletal (MSK) services for conditions affecting bones, muscles and joints.
People registered with GPs in Camberley, Bagshot, Lightwater, Frimley and Ash Vale are being asked to comment on non-hospital physiotherapy, orthopaedic and chronic pain services – to say what they think of the current NHS services and what they would like to be available in the future.
