What is a Clinical CommissiongGroup  (CCG)  ?

In layman's terms they decide what to spend the available money on. 

They order ("commission") services from NHS Trusts such as Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust (DCHS) which actually operate Whitworth Hospital.

Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust (DCHS) also operate Orchard Cottage.

NHS Derby & Derbyshire CCG

The 4 separate CCGs in Derbyshire merged on 1st April 2019 to form NHS Derby & Derbyshire CCG 

12 Whitworth Beds retained

It has proved very difficult to implement the proposed ward at Chesterfield and the CCG looked at other options. 

At the CCG Board Meeting on 13th December 2018 they finally agreed to amend their plan to:

12 beds - Whitworth Hospital (Oker Ward) 😃
12 beds - Clay Cross
08 beds - Buxton (as originally planned)

In 2022 Oker Ward at the Whitworth continues to offer in-patient care.
