Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) are groups of GPs that will, from April 2013, be responsible for commissioning (buying) health and care services. The CCG will therefore be the key body in deciding whether Health Services in Calderdale remain in the public sector or become privatised.
The NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group’s Board is called the Clinical Commissioning Executive (CCE). The CCE is a subcommittee of the NHS Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield District Cluster Board until this is abolished on 1 April 2013.
The CCE meets once a month. CCE meetings are open to the public every other month (!). For more information, contact the Board Secretary on 01422 281806 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
