Our Governing Body

on . Posted in Governing Body Members

The Governing Body is the accountable body of the CCG and is held to account for the CCG’s performance. To ensure clinical leadership, the majority of our Governing Body members are clinical professionals. Our Governing Body also includes two lay members who ensure that the views of the community are represented and provide independent judgement.

Our Governing Body sets our strategy and direction, as well as ensuring that the CCG is delivering its statutory duties and ambitions for the health and care of everyone who lives in the area.
