Primary Care Commissioning Committee

This committee is held jointly between NHS England and NHS Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).  Its main purpose is to jointly commission (or buy) primary care for the people of Bolton.  Primary care includes the services provided at your GP practice.

Following changes to the NHS in 2013, NHS England has been responsible for commissioning primary care.  In 2014, CCGs were invited to get more involved in this area and take on greater powers to improve services locally.  Bolton CCG formally expressed an interest in working jointly with NHS England to co-commission the services provided by GP practices and this was approved.  The Joint Commissioning Committee was set up to oversee this work and make sure everything is done properly.

The overall aim of primary care co-commissioning is to create a more joined up system of commissioning services, which is led by health professionals and delivers more patient care outside of hospitals.  It means more decisions can be taken locally to meet the needs of the people living in that area.  In Bolton, co-commissioning has allowed the CCG to invest more money in GP practices and work closely with practices to drive improvements right across the borough.   

The Primary Care Joint Commissioning Committee is established in accordance with the CCG's Constitution, Standing Orders, and Scheme of Delegation.
