Governing body

Our Governing Body

The CCG’s membership has established a Governing Body to ensure that the CCG functions effectively, efficiently and economically, that decisions are made in an open and transparent way, and that the interests of patients and the public remain central to the goals of the organisation.

In accordance with our Constitution, the Governing Body includes practice representatives, lay members, a nurse advisor, secondary care advisor, and experienced NHS managers.
