Barn Close Surgery has been part of the wider South Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Group since CCGs were developed in 2013 to replace the outgoing PCT. We have a very active role within the CCG which is constantly striving to provide better care for patients, whilst helping GP surgeries deliver this care.
We are part of the Evesham, Broadway, Bredon & Inkberrow Locality group. Representatives from each practice meet monthly as part of "Promoting Clinical Excellence". These meetings are centred on reducing prescribing costs and reducing unnecessary secondary care referrals.
In addition, Barn Close Surgery is part of a Federation of 32 South Worcestershire practices called SW Healthcare. Further information about this group can be found here:
