In April 2017, the CCG took on delegated responsibility from NHS England for commissioning local GP services. The potential benefits for the patients and the public include:
- Improved access to primary care and wider out-of-hospitals services, with more services available closer to home
- High quality out-of-hospitals care
- Improved health outcomes, equity of access, reduced inequalities
- A better patient experience through more joined up services
NHS England has retained responsibility for commissioning other primary care services such as opticians, dentists and pharmacists.
A Primary Care Commissioning Committee has been established as a sub-committee of our Governing Body to support the CCG in its new role and make decisions on the review, planning and procurement of GP services locally.
The meetings are chaired by a Lay Member representative and will be held in public, which means that anyone is welcome to attend and observe the meeting.
Public meetings may be stepped down if there is insufficient business need, however adequate notice will be given to the committee and members of the public in this eventuality.
Please note that these are meetings held in public, and are not public meetings. While any member of the public or the press is welcome to attend these meetings, the public and press will not have speaking rights at the Primary Care Commissioning Committee.
