Members of the public are invited to an Extraordinary Primary Care Commissioning Committee meeting, hosted by Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
The Primary Care Commissioning Committee makes collective decisions on the review, planning and procurement of primary care services (which is the care provided by GP practices) in Leicester City, under delegated authority from NHS England.
The next meeting of the Primary Care Commissioning Committee would take place on Tuesday 20th February, 12.00pm – 1.00pm in the 8th Floor Conference Room, St Johns House, 30 East Street, Leicester, LE1 6NB.
The agenda and papers are available on the CCG’s website early next week. Members of the public are welcome to come and observe the business of the meeting and will also have the opportunity to ask questions about items on the agenda at the start of the meeting.
Notes to editors:
Clinical commissioning groups are responsible for planning and buying most health services needed by the people who live and work in their area. This includes the care you receive from your GP practice, hospital care, urgent and emergency care, community health care, mental health and learning disability services and rehabilitation for people living in their areas. Under the Health and Social Care Act, every GP practice is a member of a CCG.
Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group became a statutory body in April 2013. Leicester City CCG represents 59 GP practices and serves a population of 391,000 patients who are registered with those practices.

Leicester City CCG also works together with the health and social care organisations in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to plan health services. In November 2016, a local Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) was published by all of these organisations, describing how we are going to work together differently to improve patient care with the resources that are available.
