Primary Care Co-commissioning

CCG to have more say in local GP services

Bracknell and Ascot CCG have been approved to enter into primary care joint co-commissioning arrangements with NHS England.

This means that CCGs will have more say in local decisions, jointly with NHS England, about how primary care services are commissioned for their local populations.

Whilst there are similarities in healthcare needs across the country, each area has different challenges and needs within it. CCGs have a good knowledge of their local populations needs through their involvement with Health and Wellbeing Boards, local practices and patient and public engagement.

Sharing this responsibility with NHS England will mean that the needs of the local population will be taken into account and any engagement of people within the local area is linked to co-commissioning ensuring patients, communities and clinicians have more involvement in determining their local health care services for the future.

Joint Commissioning Committee Meetings in Common

In order to deliver joint co-commissioning Bracknell and Ascot  CCG has formed the Joint Co-Commissioning Committee – primary care.  This is a joint meeting between the CCG and NHS England and will be responsible for the joint commissioning of GP services and for the delivery of the local primary care strategy.

This committee will meet four times a year, and the meetings will take place in public so everyone is welcome to attend and observe the proceedings.

Any members of the public are welcome to come and observe the meeting and questions related to the agenda.

As agreed at the meeting  in January, we are now meeting with our neighbouring two CCG’s (Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead CCG and Slough CCG) as one meeting in common.


Details of the next meeting are to be confirmed.
