Joint Committee

The Joint Committee is made up of representatives of NHS Southport and Formby CCG and NHS West Lancashire CCG. It was formed so that collective commissioning decisions could be made about hospital services used by people living across these areas. The two individual governing bodies each agree the services and programmes the Joint Committee can make decisions about.

Each of the two CCGs has four representatives from its governing body on the Joint Committee. The Joint Committee will meet as required – at least three times a year.

Meetings during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic

To help us respond to the coronavirus we are moving all meetings that we hold in public to teleconferences for the foreseeable future. This also applies to our regular operational internal meetings in line with national guidance to ensure our staff are supported to work remotely. Whilst members of the public are currently unable to observe these meetings due to these essential changes, we will continue to publish papers as normal.

Meeting dates, venues and papers are available below.
