How are we governed?

Unlike other CCGs across England we are responsible for health and adult social care services.

Our governance structure is made up of the following committees which supports the running of the CCG:

Council of Members

The Council of Members is made up of representatives from our 30 GP member practices who each have voting rights. As a joint commissioning organisation a representative from our adult social care provider, Focus also joins and has a voting rights. This group makes decisions on service changes, which are then approved by the Governing Body / Partnership Board.

Governing Body

Our Governing Body meets twice a year. It’s made up of the same members from the partnership board, without representation from the local authority, just GPs and health professionals from CCG. This group makes the final strategic decisions for the organisation.

Partnership Board

The Partnership Board is made up of the Governing Body members joined by representatives from North East Lincolnshire Council, the Council of Members and the Community Forum. The board meets every two months in public to discuss the strategic direction of the CCG.

Community Forum

The Community Forum is made up of people from the local community who volunteer their time to work alongside clinical and managerial staff from the CCG. A representative from this group sits on the Council of Members and Governing Body to make sure local people’s views are heard.
