The NHS Manchester CCG Governing Body is made up of our Chief Accountable Officer, GPs and other health care professionals and lay member representatives.
Their role is to ensure that we function effectively and economically. The majority of the CCG’s responsibilities have been delegated to the MHCC Board following the adoption of the MHCC Partnership Agreement between NHS Manchester CCG and Manchester City Council in April 2017. However the CCG, through its Governing Body, retains some statutory responsibilities, which are:
- ensuring that the CCG has appropriate arrangements in place to exercise its functions effectively, efficiently and economically and in accordance with the CCG’s principles of good governance (its main function);
- determining the remuneration, fees and other allowances payable to employees
- or other persons providing services to the CCG and the allowances payable under any pension scheme it may establish.
The Governing Body also has responsibility for:
- approving any decision taken by the Commissioning Board to enter into the Partnership Agreement; and, if it considers it appropriate, initiate and approve the CCG’s exit from the Partnership Agreement;
- approving any recommendation made by the Commissioning Board to change the CCG’s overarching scheme of reservation and delegation;
- proposing to the members any amendments to this constitution.
Further information can be found in section four of our constitution.
