NHS England is an executive non-departmental public body which leads and oversees the planning, funding and delivery of healthcare provision in England. We are mandated to improve the country’s health and wellbeing by arranging high quality care in a way that meets current demand, in a way that is sustainable into the future.
NHS England allocates most of the funding it receives to CCGs and supports them to commission services on behalf of their patients. NHS England also undertakes direct commissioning of specialised, primary care and other services. Together they account for £105 billion of total commissioning expenditure.
