Primary Care Commissioning Committee

The Havering Primary Care Commissioning Committee is the local body responsible for the commissioning of GP services in the borough.  The Committee makes decisions locally on how family doctor (GP) services are commissioned. The Committee works with NHS England to make sure that all our residents have access to a GP and that GP practices deliver safe, high quality services to their patients.

This helps us to improve patient care in the following ways:

  • Improved access to primary care and more out-of-hospitals services available closer to home;
  • High quality out-of-hospitals care;
  • Improved health outcomes, equity of access, reduced inequalities; and
  • A better patient experience through more joined up services.

The Committee meets monthly and members of the public are welcome to attend. If confidential and sensitive matters are being discussed, the public may be excluded from this part of the meeting. The Committee is chaired by a Lay Member, and to minimise conflicts of interest, only Lay Members or Executive Officers of the CCG are voting committee members.
