About our committees
We have a number of committees who work on behalf of our Governing Body. Here’s a quick guide to who they are and what they do:
Our Primary Care Commissioning Committee is responsible for making decisions about which primary care services to commission for people living, working, and visiting Norfolk and Waveney.
It is made up of a lay member who leads on primary care, a lay member who leads on financial performance, the CCGs chief finance officer or deputy chief finance officer, a registered nurse, members of the executive management team, representation from the east local team of NHS England, the CCG associate director of primary care, head of medicines optimisation, a healthcare professional and two practice managers.
Under the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 the CCG is required to publish the time spent by CCG staff on Trade Union official duties.
NHS Norfolk and Waveney CCG is wholly supportive of partnership working and works with Trade Unions as part of appropriate CCG Engagement and Consultations. The CCG does not employ anyone who undertakes relevant union official duties as outlined in the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017. Accordingly, no time is released from by the CCG in relation to official duties. The CCG liaises and works with area/regional representatives from those recognised unions whose time will be recorded with their employing authority.
This is a short summary of the NHS South Norfolk CCG Annual Report for 2019/20.
2019/20 was the CCG’s final year before merging with the other four NHS CCGs in Norfolk and Waveney, following extensive engagement with our member practices, key partners and members of the public. We created one joint management and staff team, including locality teams to maintain existing CCG business and local working partnerships, plus teams covering ‘system’ issues such as mental health and acute services transformation.
