Covid-19 update: On 28th March 2020, Amanda Pritchard Chief Operating Officer, NHS England & NHS Improvement wrote to NHS providers and commissioners outlining ways for them to free up as much capacity as possible to enable us to prioritise our workload to focus on doing what was necessary to manage the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since this point, we have been operating a lean committee structure. The meetings of our Governing Bodies and sub-committees have been taking place virtually, with focused agendas recognising that decisions needed to be taken quickly. This approach has meant that there were fewer committee meetings and fewer formal papers being presented.

As we move into a restoration and recovery phase, we want to continue with our commitment to transparent decision making about how we operate our services and use our funds. Over the coming weeks, papers and agendas will begin to be added to our website as meetings take place. We will keep this under review and update this page with future meeting dates when they are arranged.



The Role of the Governing Body

Members of the Governing Body share responsibility to ensure that the CCG exercises its functions effectively, efficiently, economically, with good governance and in accordance with the terms of the CCG constitution.

Each individual is there to bring their unique perspective, informed by their expertise and experience. This will support decisions made by the governing body as a whole to ensure:

  • the voice of member practices is heard
  • the interests of patients and the community remain at the heart of discussions and decisions
  • the CCG commissions the highest quality services with a view to securing the best
  • possible outcomes for patients 
  • the CCG is responsive to the views of local people and promotes self-care and
  • shared decision-making in all aspects of its business.

The Governing Body meetings in public are open to observers. 2019 meeting dates and supporting documents can be found here. 

Details for 2018 meetings can be found here
