Governing Body meetings

These pages provide information on our public meetings of the Governing Body including future dates, attendance guidance and previous Governing Body meeting papers and minutes:

Governing Body Dates

Governing Body Papers

Public meetings of the Governing Body of NHS Southend CCG are held bi-monthly. This means members of the public are welcome to attend and observe the meetings.

Members of the public wishing to attend the meetings can find copies of the agenda and other papers here on our website before the date of the Governing Body meeting. 

From time to time, the Governing Body may need to consider agenda items which are confidential and cannot be discussed in public. If this is the case, a private session will be held at the meeting, from which the public will be excluded. 

Patient group meetings

NHS Southend Clinical Commissioning Group uses a range of channels to engage local stakeholders and ensure the voices of patients, service users and local people are heard.  We are a member of the Patient Participation Group Forum (PPGF), managed by Healthwatch Southend.  This meets every other month and brings together representatives and members of the local voluntary and third sectors to help us design our engagement and communications to ensure wider input from local stakeholders.
