Wigan Borough Clinical Commissioning Group is the statutory body responsible for commissioning local health services in Ashton, Leigh and Wigan.

Wigan is one of the largest CCGs with a population of 320,000 and is very diverse. To make sure that we are aware of the needs of all our communities and that everyone is represented, the CCG is divided in to six 'localities'.  

The localities bring together GP Practices to work together with the CCG to commission new and improved local health services.  They help the CCG embed their priorities within local practices, and make sure that the voices of patients, GPs and practice staff are heard by the CCG. 

Each locality has a clinical lead on the Board and its own locality meetings to make sure that the views of all GPs, practices and patients in Wigan are listened to.  

See the information below to find out about each locality:
