Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria has formed a committee to make decisions on health and healthcare.
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are NHS organisations that plan and buy healthcare for their communities. The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (JCCCG) is a meeting of the CCGs in Lancashire and South Cumbria and will be responsible for making decisions about any future proposals referred to it by the CCGs. Decisions that will be referred if they require a Lancashire and South Cumbria approach, but most decisions about healthcare will continue to be taken locally.
The committee is held in public and chaired by Phil Watson CBE, who is independent of the health organisations.
The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups consists of GPs and lay members from each of the Clinical Commissioning Groups in Lancashire and South Cumbria. Chief Executives from Lancashire County Council, Blackburn with Darwen Council, Blackpool Council, representatives from district Councils and local Healthwatch attend the meetings.
The next public meeting will be 4th October 2018 at The Civic Centre, Leyland, PR25 1DH
If members of the public would like to attend, they are asked to contact the Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria Team on 01253 951630 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and provide details of any specific requirements they might have.
Please let us know about your plans as it enables us to organise drinks and seating arrangements at the venue.
