Medway Clinical Commissioning Group has a governing body made up of local GPs, a registered nurse and several lay members, all working with a network of health professionals across the area.
Individual members of the governing body bring different perspectives, drawn from their different professions, roles, background and experience. These differing insights into the range of challenges and opportunities facing the CCG will, together, ensure that the CCG takes a balanced view across the whole of its business.
The members of the governing body are key appointments for the CCG. All governing body members have been subjected to a competitive recruitment and selection process, ensuring that each member meets the essential requirements of the role. Our GP clinical members have been elected by member practices to ensure that they have the necessary mandate to act on behalf of member practices. All members are required to demonstrate that they have the leadership skills necessary to fulfil the responsibilities of their role and be able to establish credibility with all stakeholders and partners.

The overarching role of the governing body is to ensure that the CCG has appropriate arrangements in place to exercise its functions effectively, efficiently and economically and in accordance with generally accepted principles of good governance and the constitution of the CCG.
