Health care in Berkshire is some of the best in the country

Patients in Reading, Bracknell and Wokingham are receiving care which is being planned and delivered by outstanding organisations.

That is according to NHS England, which rated the clinical commissioning groups in all three towns ‘outstanding’ in a recent assesment.

South Reading CCG, North and West Reading CCG, Bracknell and Ascot CCG and Wokingham CCG all received the top rating.

Only 21 out of the 209 CCGs in England were rated outstanding, so the four Berkshire CCGs are in the top 10 per cent in the country.

The publicly funded organisations are assessed on how they improve health of patients and the health care they provide, their leadership and their financial management.

Cathy Winfield, chief officer of the Berkshire West CCGs said: “I’m pleased there has been recognition of the performance of the four CCGs over the last year and delighted that we have been rated ‘outstanding’.

“We will continue to work with our partners to ensure people get the support they need for their health and wellbeing.
