Transforming primary care in Greenwich 

Primary care services and particularly local GP Surgeries are the first point of contact in the healthcare system for residents.  

From the 1 April 2017 NHS England delegated to NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group the authority to exercise the primary care commissioning functions set out in Schedule 2, in accordance with section 13z, of the NHS Act 2006, (as amended). From that date, NHS Greenwich CCG became responsible for the design, shaping and commissioning of local general practices, on behalf of NHS England.

This arrangement allows us to work more closely with general practice, help improve primary care services and support delivery of our 2018-2022 Commissioning Strategy.

Meetings of the Greenwich Primary Care Commissioning Committee 

As part of this full delegation of primary care responsibilities, regular meetings of the Greenwich Primary Care Commissioning Committee (PCCC) take place in public,

The PCCC is a committee of the CCG Governing Body and functions as the decision making body for the management of the delegated functions and the exercise of delegated powers as set out in the NHS Greenwich CCG Constitution and Scheme of Delegation. Healthwatch Greenwich have a key role on the committee. 

The remit and responsibilities of the Committee includes:

  • Planning primary medical services (including carrying out and responding to local needs assessments).
  • Reviewing and seeking to improve and support the development of local general practice.
  • Managing and ensuring the commissioning of good quality services within the budgets available to pay for them.

Papers for the Committee are available from the CCG website five working days before the scheduled meeting. 

These are meetings held in public and members of the public are welcome to attend. The public can submit questions in advance by emailing Lauren Meager, stating which meeting and agenda item the question refers to.
