Primary Care is the term used to describe core health services that are usually the first port of call for local people - GPs, Dentists, Pharmacists and Opticians.

On the 1st April 2018, Surrey Heath CCG accepted delegated responsibility from NHS England for certain functions of primary care commissioning. This is an important step forward for the CCG as it enables closer working with General Practice in our area, offers the opportunity for us to respond to local population needs and plan healthcare services for the future on a local level.

In order to deliver primary care commissioning across Surrey Heath, the CCG has formed a committee that will be responsible for decision making in respect of the primary care responsibilities now delegated to the CCG. This includes members making collective decisions on the review, planning and procurement of Primary Care Services in Surrey Heath.

The Primary Care Commissioning Committee meetings are held in Public from 4.15pm on the dates below. All meetings take place at St. Paul’s Church, Crawley Ridge, Camberley, Surrey GU15 2AD.

2020 Meeting Dates

Conflicts of Interest

The CCG already manages conflicts of interest as part of its day-to-day work and assuming responsibility for commissioning primary care services will make this even more important. Guidance on delegated commissioning clearly states that Member Practice GPs cannot participate directly in the procurement of their own services. Conflicts of interest, perceived or actual, can be mitigated by robust governance processes and learnings from other fully-delegated CCGs.
