The CCG’s constitution describes the governing principles, rules and procedures that the CCG has established to ensure probity and accountability; to make sure that decisions are taken in an open and transparent way and that the interests of patients and the public remain central to the goals of the organisation.
The Governing Body has established six committees to support its work. Terms of reference are available below:
- Audit Committee
- Finance and Performance Committee
- Primary Care Commissioning Committee
- Quality and Safety Committee
- Remuneration Committee
- Recovery Committee
There is also a joint committee of the CCG, which is part of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Sustainability and Transformation Partnership. The joint committee brings together the 11 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in West Yorkshire and Harrogate. The individual CCGs have delegated powers to the joint committee to make collective decisions on specific services, including cancer, mental health, urgent care and stroke.
The joint committee will make sure decisions made at a West Yorkshire and Harrogate level are made with the right clinical input and the right authority from local CCGs. It has a shared health work plan that aims to further improve the health and wellbeing of the 2.6 million people living across West Yorkshire and Harrogate, regardless of age.
Further details of the joint committee and its meetings and business can be found here.
