Our Governing Body
The Governing Body is responsible for planning and commissioning excellent quality, value for money health care services for our local population and is the formal decision-making committee of the CCG. It has a very strong clinical membership and focus, with a GP Chair and four additional GP Members, Chief Nursing Officer and Director of Quality, Medical Director for Strategy and Transformation, Medical Director for Quality and Assurance and a Secondary Care Doctor.
The Governing Body also includes four independent Lay Members, to provide assurance, scrutiny and challenge to CCG’s decision making.
All Governing Body members are required to declare any conflicts of interest as soon as they arise. All conflicts are captured in the Register of Interests.
