About the Committee

The Joint Commissioning Committee of the Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Groups ('the Committee') is a meeting of the four CCGs of Cheshire:

NHS Eastern Cheshire CCG
NHS South Cheshire CCG
NHS Vale Royal CCG
NHS West Cheshire CCG

It has been set up to manage the activities of the four CCGs as within its delegated responsibilities. The Annual Workplan of the Committee can be found by clicking here.

The Committee has the primary purpose of enabling the CCG members to work effectively together to collaborate and take joint decisions in the areas of work they agree. Decisions that will be undertaken by the Committee will be where a Cheshire wide approach is required, but most decisions about healthcare will continue to be taken locally. Individual CCGs that constitute the membership of the Committee will still always remain accountable for meeting their statutory duties.

The role and remit of the Committee is outlined within its Terms of Reference, which can be found by clicking here.
