The demographics of North Kirklees is quite varied because of the diversity in this authority, which results in a number of different factors that have influenced the orgnisation and the provision of services. This area has many inequalities partly due to the lack of organisation of funding as well as the diversity of the region. This area consists of many small towns: Batley, Dewsbury, Heckmondwike, Cleckheaton, Mirfield, Huddersfield, and Holmfirth. The diversity of this area is due to the age of the population, health needs, disability, unemployment, the number of single parent families and the number of older people within the population. In order to reduce illness and disease from our area an authority is responsible for organising and buying the provision of services to ensure that the needs to the area is met. This authority is called the CCG. The Clincial Commissing Group is made up of a membership body which consists of senior doctors, a few senior nurse, care consultants. They work in the industry so they know how to spend the money as they will be seeing the needs of the people within the area on a daily basis. They recieve some advice of care from JSNA. There role is to allocate and distribute the funding recieved from the government to the smaller services. They do this by looking at data taken from the services within health and social care, to enable them to meet the needs to the area.
