The Greenwich borough-based board is a prime committee of NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). It has executive powers delegated to it by the CCG’s governing body for planning and funding (commissioning) services in Greenwich, as part of the organisations overall commissioning plans for south east London.
The board’s role is to ensure that decisions are taken at the right scale for delegated services and to involve the council wherever possible.
The board is responsible for commissioning:
- GP services
- Community health services (for example district nursing)
- Services for specific patient needs (for example in mental health and services for children and young people)
- Medicines optimisation (for example making the best use of medicines to support community based care)
- Continuing healthcare (for example for people with disabilities or people who are approaching the end of their lives)
The Greenwich borough-based board works closely with the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Health and Wellbeing Board and the Healthier Greenwich Alliance, which is our local care partnership with our wider partners and providers. The Director of Adults & Health Services, Director of Public Health, and Director of Childrens Services are full members of the borough-based board, so we can make joint and collaborative decisions across health and care.
NHS South East London CCG values public views on health care across its six boroughs and is committed to transparency in all areas of our Governance.
