Our committee structure
Council of Members
Our Council of Members is made up of 31 local GPs (one from each GP practice in the Surrey Downs area). The Council of Members shapes our vision and strategy, approves commissioning plans, and agrees our constitution.
Our Governing Body is mandated by law to make sure the CCG's functions are exercised effectively, efficiently and economically, in accordance with established principles of good governance. Most of its membership is doctors and independent lay-people.
The Governing Body is supported by an Executive Committee chaired by Dr Claire Fuller as Acting Clinical Chief Officer, which is accountable for the day-to-day running of the CCG and its operations.
Patients Advisory Group
We believe in involving local people in all our decisions about the services we buy, and our Patient Advisory Group is just one example of how we do this.
The Quality Committee monitors patient safety and experience, and clinical quality, in order to drive up standards and provide assurance to the Governing Body that the care commissioned by the CCG is of a high quality.
The Audit Committee provides an independent and objective view of the CCG’s systems, information and compliance with laws, regulations and directions.
