Primary Care Commissioning Committees in Common

The Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (BOB) CCGs are to hold in common Primary Care Commissioning Committees (PCCCs) meetings. These are currently being held virtually and you can join via Microsoft Teams to listen to the discussions.

Their primary purpose is commissioning primary medical services for the registered population of the CCG. The meetings in common are held in public quarterly and are the forums of the organisations to discuss and make decisions related to the provision of primary care in general practice. The general public are routinely invited to attend.

Due to the Prime Minister's announcement on 12 December about the rapid expansion of the booster vaccine programme we are postponing the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West CCGs Primary Care Commissioning meetings in common on Thursday 16 December. The main focus for the CCGs now to end of the month is to work to significantly expand local capacity to ensure we offer every adult the chance to book a covid-19 booster vaccine by the end of the year to help protect them and their family and community against the Omicron variant.

Thursday 16 December meeting is cancelled. Questions relating to the papers can still be directed to bwccg.bwprimarycare@nhs.net up until 5pm on Friday 17 December 2021.  All papers are available here. The two items for decision (Item 6 Locally Commissioned Services and Item 8 Buckinghamshire Primary Care Estates Strategy) will be considered virtually by members of the Committee. All questions and answers will be responded to and published on the website here. The next meeting is currently scheduled for 17 March 2022.

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

  • To join, do so through a desktop or laptop computer rather than through a mobile/smartphone device. This is because use of a mobile/smartphone shall 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.
  • A browser will be chosen by the user to open the link (if not the default browser), at which point a prompt to the 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.
