Our governing body

Our governing body includes experienced GPs, a nurse director, other healthcare professionals, lay members, senior NHS managers and a patient representative. You can read profiles of governing body members below. 

Joint governing body meetings

We now meet jointly with our other two CCG governing bodies in BHR, in public, four or five times a year to review our own performance as well as that of our main providers and to plan, discuss and make decisions about local health services and how we can best improve them for the benefit of patients and the public. At the meeting we receive reports from our chair, our chief officer, directors and lay members as appropriate.

We also have a slot for the public to ask us questions about local healthcare and our priorities. We ask that anyone wishing to submit questions lets us know in advance so we can gather all the information we might need to help us answer fully.  If you would like to ask the Governing Body a question at a Governing Body meeting, please contact annemarie.keliris@nhs.net seven days before the meeting.
