Wolverhampton CCG has developed a members' constitution that describes how the CCG brings its 40 member GP practices together to commission care for the residents of the city.
The CCG is a membership organisation which makes clinically-led decisions that will give patients and their carers a voice and put them at the heart of the CCG's work.
Wolverhampton CCG's constitution sets out the powers that our member practices have decided to reserve to themselves as members of the CCG, and which powers they have decided to delegate to the Governing Body of the CCG and its committees. It describes the governing principles, rules and procedures that our member practices have established to ensure accountability and probity in the day-to-day running of the CCG.
