East Suffolk and Ipswich merge

30th November 2011

Two of Suffolk’s three clinical commissioning groups have merged.

Ipscom, which covered 15 practices and a population of 164,000 around Ipswich, has joined with the East Suffolk CCG. The new body, which covers 385,000 people, will continue to go under the name the East Suffolk CCG. The West Suffolk CCG is unchanged, and covers 235,000 patients, with the new two CCG structure taking effect from next April. With Suffolk primary care trust to be abolished in March 2013, they aim to be fully authorised in the first wave of CCGs.
