The GPs at CHC are part of of NHS Hounslow Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). This is the GP-led organisation responsible for planning and buying (commissioning) health services for the people living in Hounslow. The group is made up of 54 GP Practices serving a registered patient population of 288,000. They are committed to improving the care provided to patients, reducing health inequalities and raising the quality and standards of GP practices whilst achieving a financial balance. There is an excellent web site for HCCG which has lots of information and is worth while visiting. Click here to visit it.
The CCG is overseen by NHS England which makes sure they have the capacity and capability to commission services successfully and to meet the financial responsibilities of the CCG. 
At Chiswick Health Centre there are three GP Practices and also other services which come under the aegis of Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust. They are  the NHS trust responsible for providing community health services for over 500,000 people living in the London boroughs of Hounslow and Richmond Upon Thames.

They provide a wide range of health services for adults and children including community nursing, health visiting, physiotherapy, smoking cessation, neuro-rehabilitation, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and health and well-being services.

The GPs use an external service called the Referral Facilitation Service when they refer patients to hospital.There is a leaflet on the Referral Facilitation Service and the Choose and Book scheme. You can download the RFS leaflet here and the Choose and Book leaflet here.
