Tan House Community Enterprise - Ennerdale, Tan House, Skelmersdale, WN8 6AN
This Committee is a meeting of the Clinical Commissioning Groups in Lancashire and South Cumbria which is held in public and chaired by Phil Watson CBE, who is independent of the health organisations. Following the meeting there will be an opportunity for questions from the public to the committee.
The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups will be responsible for making decisions about any future proposals referred to it by the CCGs. Any decisions that will need to be made will have been escalated because they require a Lancashire and South Cumbria approach, but most decisions about healthcare will be taken locally.
The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups is made up of GPs and lay members from each of the Clinical Commissioning Groups in Lancashire and South Cumbria. Chief Executives from Lancashire County Council, Blackburn with Darwen Council, Blackpool Council, representatives from district Councils, local Healthwatch are not members of the Committee, but attend the meetings.
