Health decision makers to meet later this month

NHS Bury Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) next routine Governing Body meeting is taking place later in the month, and members of the public are invited to come along to observe.

The Governing Body meetings are where discussions and decisions happen in relation to the planning and funding of local health services.

The next Governing Body meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 26th July from 3pm at Townside Primary Care Centre, Knowsley Place in Bury (5th floor). Regular items on the agenda will include finance, performance and quality.

On the same day, the CCG’s Primary Care Commissioning Committee will meet from 12 noon at the same venue.

The Primary Care Commissioning Committee oversees the work of the CCG in relation to the commissioning of Primary Care services, such as GP services. Regular items on the agenda include finance and quality.  In addition at this meeting the committee will be sharing the next steps around the Primary Care Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

Public questions relating to agenda items being discussed at both meetings are welcome. These should be submitted in advance to allow sufficient time for the question to be picked up and processed in advance of the meetings.

Question forms are available on the CCG’s website ( under ‘Your local NHS’, and paper copies can be obtained by contacting the CCG by telephone on 0161 762 3189 or by email at

Dr. Kiran Patel, Chair of NHS Bury CCG said: “Our Governing Body and Primary Care meetings are held in public and provide a great opportunity for local people to come along and find out more about what we do and to get closer to the decision making process about the services we plan and purchase on their behalf. We regularly welcome members of the public to our meetings and I would encourage anyone who would like to find out more about what we do and how we make decisions to come along.”

The agenda and papers for the meetings will be available on the ‘Your local NHS’ section of the CCG website in advance of the meetings.
