Our Governing Body

Our work is overseen by a Governing Body which is made up of GP’s, our Executive and a number of Lay members.

There are currently three Governing bodies, one for each CCG. We are working to create one Governing Body for the new CCG which will be established in April 2021, until then the three governing bodies must remain separate legal entities. The three governing bodies are however able to operate as a joint committee in common.

Dr Nicola Smith was appointed as the Chair of the CCG’s in April 2020 and will serve until the new Governing Body is created next year.

For residents unable to view the 22 September Governing Bodies in Common meeting, which are now available to view live on our website, Dr Nicola Smith has recorded a short summary video. Stay up to date and watch it here.

Our three governing bodies will hold their next joint meeting on Tuesday 17 November 2020 and we will make this available to the public by streaming it live on the home page of this website.

Well be adding previous governing body and board meeting papers to this site in due course. In the meantime, if you need copies of any past papers, please Contact Us
