Our CCG is governed by local doctors, nurses and experienced managers, known as the Governing Body. It meets every month to make decisions and approve plans for improving healthcare and health services in Northumberland.
The Governing Body ensures that the CCG functions effectively and economically, and that commissioning decisions are debated in an open and fair way.
Meetings of the Governing Body are held monthly and a minimum of four of these meetings are held in public each year.
The governing body has four committees:
- clinical management board
- audit committee
- corporate finance committee
- appointments and remuneration committee
The terms of reference for the committees can be found below:
Our next Governing Body meeting held in public will be on Wednesday 23 October 2019 at 11.30am held at Morpeth Rugby Football Club, Grange House Field, Mitford Road, Morpeth NE61 1RJ.
At the meeting the Governing Body will decide future arrangements on the Whalton Unit, Morpeth.
