The CCG is governed by a Constitution and a supporting Governance Handbook approved by NHS England. It is updated as required with approval. A full copy of our current constitution can be downloaded on the link below.
We, along with all other NHS organisations, also abide by the NHS Constitution for England.

The CCG Governing Body makes sure that the CCG meets its responsibilities, fulfils its duties as required by the Health and Social Care Act (2012) and works within the framework of its constitution. It meets regularly and the meetings are held in public, so everyone is welcome to attend to watch.
The Governing Body is mostly made up of doctors and is led by our GP Chair, Dr Tim Dalton. Dr Dalton is still a working GP at Shakespeare Surgery in Wigan and, with the support of our Managing Director, he makes sure that the CCG is always focused on the needs of the patients.
The CCG has a small number of Committees that report in to the Governing Body.
These committees meet privately and each focuses on a different area of business:
- Audit Committee
- Clinical Governance Committee
- Corporate Governance Committee
- Finance and Performance Committee
- Remuneration Committee
