Primary Care Commissioning Committee

The Primary Care Commissioning Committee (PCCC) is a quarterly meeting to which NHS England has delegated responsibility for the commissioning of GP services. 
The Committee is also responsible for the delivery of the local strategy for primary care (General Practice Forward View)

The next Primary Care Commissioning Committee is being held from 1-3pm on Wednesday 14 October 2020. 

The CCG is currently using Microsoft Teams for video conferencing to hold its meetings during the pandemic, whilst social distancing restrictions remain in place. This includes those held in public. Users are therefore advised:

  1. To use the Microsoft Teams link here and/or on the agenda for the meeting.
  2. To do so through your desktop or laptop computer rather than through a mobile/smartphone device. This is because use of a mobile/smartphone will prompt installation and use of an app alongside username and password to access the meeting. This is not a requirement when using a desktop or laptop computer. Registration with and use of the app (with GDPR compliance) is therefore at individual discretion.
  3. A browser will be chosen by the user to open the link (if not the default browser), at which point a prompt to enter the meeting will appear “join on the web instead”. Having allowed Microsoft Teams to use your mic and camera for calls and meetings on the browser, entered a guest name and clicked “Join now”, the user will enter the “lobby” until the host or another participant lets the user into the meeting.
  4. Participants should also mute their microphone and turn off their camera during the meeting.
  5. At the end of the meeting questions from the public will be read out, along with responses from the CCG. The Chair will offer members of the public the opportunity to ask additional question at the end of the meeting if time allows.
