North West Surrey CCG will begin consultation and engagement work on the design of integrated urgent care and out of hospital services in the spring. We have been working on the development of the strategy urgent care and out of hospital services, looking at the needs of the whole North West Surrey population following the Weybridge Community Hospital fire. This strategy will expand the range of urgent care services available to local people and bring services together to operate in a much more integrated way. This consultation and engagement work will include the design of future services across North West Surrey, informing the redevelopment of the Weybridge Hospital site.


NHS England has launched a consultation inviting GPs, clinical commissioning groups, patients and members of the public to comment on whether low-cost items that can be purchased over the counter for common minor ailments should remain available on prescription. The cost to the NHS for items like basic painkillers and eyedrops is estimated at £136m a year.

 Every year local health and care organisations set their plans and priorities (known as commissioning intentions) for the year ahead.

To reflect closer working across Guildford and Waverley, North West Surrey and Surrey Downs Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Surrey County Council, as well as work happening across the wider Surrey Heartlands area, this year we have developed joint commissioning intentions for health and social care.
