Simon Stevens, the Chief Executive of NHS England, announced on 1 May 2014 that NHS England was inviting CCGs to expand their role in primary care commissioning and to submit expressions of interest setting out the CCG’s preference for how it would like to exercise expanded primary medical care commissioning functions. One option available was that NHS England would delegate the exercise of certain specified primary care commissioning functions to a CCG. Wigan Borough CCG submitted a proposal to take on full delegated powers which NHS England approved last month.
The CCG is pleased to announce the first meeting of its Primary Care Commissioning Committee at 11am on 28 April 2015. Everybody is welcome to attend these meetings and it is really important to us that people do. Sometimes there are items which must be discussed in private due to confidentiality; these items are heard after the public (open) meeting finishes.
