NHS Kernow is the clinical commissioning group for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Our job is to buy health services for the population of the county and islands including hospitals, mental health services, children's services and community services. Our annual budget is around £700 million a year.
We formally took over this function on April 1, 2013 from Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Primary Care Trust, when it was abolished. Public Health is now the responsibility of Cornwall Council or the Council of the Isles of Scilly while GPs, dentists, pharmacies and optometrists are commissioned by NHS England.
