NHS North East London Clinical Commissioning Group (NEL CCG) is responsible for planning, buying and monitoring health services for people living and working in north east London.

We’re a membership organisation made up of 275 GP practices, serving over two million people across our eight local authority areas:

We were formed on 1 April 2021 through the merger of the seven CCGs in north east London and are responsible for deciding how much of the local healthcare budget of over £3.1 billion is spent. We do this by working with our local health and care partners.

Our governing body, headed by local GPs, is responsible for making sure that any decisions we make are made openly and transparently. 

Our transition to an Integrated Care Board

Subject to the Government’s Health and Care Bill becoming law, from 1 July 2022 NEL CCG will no longer exist and a new statutory organisation – an Integrated Care Board (ICB) – will be established, which we expect will be called NHS North East London.

The ICB will take on the NHS commissioning functions of CCGs as well as some of NHS England’s commissioning functions. It will be responsible for the NHS budget and performance within the system. Read more about these changes here.
