The Governing Body

Chaired by Dr Salma Reehana with Dr Helen Hibbs as the Chief Officer, our CCG has outstanding clinical leadership with years of experience in the delivery of effective healthcare services.

Our Governing Body is responsible for leading the CCG, ensuring that it fulfils all of its responsibilities, enables GP practice members to take part in decision-making, oversees and monitors performance and quality, and ensures there is good governance and stewardship of the local NHS.


The ethos of the CCG is that it is clinically-led, managerially supported. The Governing Body membership is a diverse mix of local GPs, executives, the council representatives and lay advisors who represent the interest of local patient and community groups.
