Governing Body members

The work of North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is overseen by our Governing Body. It sets the strategic direction of the CCG, decides on expenditure and ensures the organisation functions effectively and efficiently.

The CCG is a membership organisation, representing the 203 GP practices across North Central London, who elect clinical and practice members to the Governing Body. As required by our constitution, the Governing Body also includes lay members, a registered nurse, a secondary care doctor and CCG executives. So many members are healthcare professionals dealing with the day-to-day health and care needs of North Central London residents. They play a key role in the CCG’s decision-making.

The Governing Body meets regularly and these meetings are open to the public, so any plans to change local health services are discussed and decided openly. Members are required to declare their interests on a regular basis, so any potential conflicts can be managed appropriately.
