The North Mersey Joint Committee is made up of representatives of NHS Knowsley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS Liverpool CCG, NHS South Sefton CCG and NHS Southport & Formby CCG. It was formed so that collective commissioning decisions could be made about services used by people living across these four areas. The four individual governing bodies each agree the services/programmes the Joint Committee can make decisions about.
During summer 2021 it was agreed that NHS West Lancashire CCG would join the Joint Committee temporarily for the purpose of decision-making around the review of North Mersey hyper-acute stroke services. This is because West Lancashire patients use stroke services at Southport Hospital, which is part of the review.
As Joint Committee meetings are meetings held in public – rather than public meetings – members of the public can observe the business of the meeting but cannot take part in the debate, unless specifically invited to do so by the Chair. Time will be allocated at the end of each meeting for public questions.
