Primary Care Commissioning Committee

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.  View the  pdf Primary Care Committee Terms of Reference (252 KB) .
