West Hampshire CCG is divided into six 'localities'.
These are geographical areas of west Hampshire which have their own GP leads. These GP leads feed back local issues from practices to the CCG, through meetings and other events.

Our communities are diverse and the area ranges from Whitchurch in the north to the New Forest in the south, including the areas surrounding Winchester, Romsey and Eastleigh in between.
Many of the villages and towns in the north of our area naturally point towards the cities of Basingstoke and Salisbury, in addition to Winchester. The more urban area around Eastleigh are closely linked with the city of Southampton. The towns and villages in the south west new Forest have connections with Christchurch and Bournemouth.
The people who live in the hamlets, villages, towns and cities in west Hampshire have the opportunity to get involved in the work of our CCG. To find out more, visit our Get Involved pages.

The health of local people
- Life expectancy is significantly higher across the CCG for men and women than average for both the South East and England
- We have an increasing number of patients with long term conditions like diabetes, lung disease and heart disease
- Higher than average prevalence of dementia of 0.74%, higher than the rest of Hampshire (0.65%) and England (0.53%) with 4,295 patients
- The estimated smoking prevalence amongst adults in all local authorities in the CCG is significantly lower than the England rate of 20%.
Overall the CCG has very low levels of socio-economic deprivation which can make it difficult to identify and tackle the pockets of health and social inequalities that we know exist - just over one in ten children (10,400) are living in poverty and one in ten people over 60 in the CCG are income deprived.
Joint Strategic Needs Assessment
The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment identifies the current and future health and social care needs of the local population and analyses whether needs are being met locally.
