Our vision is to create a healthier Hull, and in order to achieve this we have a number of teams working on a variety of priorities.
On this page you will find information about our teams and a general overview of the work they do. We work closely and flexibly with our local GPs and health professionals. Whilst the CCG may be relatively small (less than 70 people work here) we have knowledgeable staff with a wide range of experience and skills to make sure we provide the best services possible for you.
If you require any further information, or want to contact one of the teams please contact us.
