The next meeting in public will be on:
Date: 12th May 2020
In order to deliver delegated commissioning across the east of Berkshire, three local CCGs will come together for the Primary Care Commissioning Committee Meetings in Common.
This Board will be responsible for the commissioning of GP services and for the delivery of the local primary care strategy.
This committee will meet six times a year, and the meetings will take place in public so everyone is welcome to attend, observe the proceedings, and email questions by 12pm on [date to be announced]: email@example.com
The CCG already manages conflicts of interest as part of its day-to-day work and assuming responsibility for commissioning primary care services will make this even more important. Guidance on delegated commissioning clearly states that GPs cannot participate directly in the procurement of their own services. Conflicts of interest, perceived or actual, can be mitigated by robust governance processes and learnings from other fully-delegated CCGs.
Please note prior to the Primary Care Commissioning Committee meetings, the board met as the Primary Care Joint Commissioning Committee Meeting in Common (from April 2016 to March 2018), and prior to April 2016 each of the three CCGs in East Berkshire (Bracknell and Ascot CCG, Slough CCG and Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead CCG) met separately as a Joint Commissioning Committee meeting with NHS England .
