About us

We are a clinically-led statutory NHS body, responsible for the planning and commissioning of health care services for our local area. There are now 209 clinical commissioning groups in England, and we cover the Coastal West Sussex area.

We are responsible for the health of our entire local population (about 482,100 people), and are measured by how much we improve health outcomes.

We are responsible for about 60% of the local NHS budget and commission local health services including mental health care, urgent and emergency care, elective hospital services, and community care.
