This bulletin presents the 2012 mid-year population estimates for the clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in England. The Health and Social Care Act 2012 introduced a new structure for NHS organisation which replaced primary care organisations (PCOs) with CCGs from 1 April 2013. This bulletin also describes population estimates for the former PCO areas. CCG areas are formed from groups of lower layer Super Output Areas (LSOAs), which are a level of geography designed specifically for the reporting of small area statistics. These estimates are of particular use to the Department of Health, NHS organisations and researchers. Earlier CCG population estimates for mid-2011 were published in August 2013.

CCGs are responsible for deciding how NHS funds are spent in their local PCOs in April 2013. There are 211 CCGs in England with a median population size of 221,000 in mid-2012. Population size ranges from 63,100 in NHS Corby to 869,400 in NHS North, East, West Devon. Eight of the ten CCGs with the largest population increases in the year to mid-2012 are in London. In mid-2012 the lowest median age in a CCG was 27.0 in NHS Bradford City. The highest median age in mid-2012 was 49.5 in NHS North Norfolk.
