Primary Care Commissioning Committee (PCCC)

NHS Waltham Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) took on a delegated commissioning role from NHS England on 1 April 2015. 

The Waltham Forest Primary Care Commissioning Committee (PCCC) is responsible for commissioning GP services in the borough. 

The PCCC makes decisions locally on how General Practice (GP) services are commissioned. 

The committee works with NHS England to ensure that all Waltham Forest residents have access to a GP, and that GP practices deliver safe, high quality services to their patients. 

This arrangement supports the CCG to improve patient care in the following ways: 

  • Increased access to primary care and more out-of-hospitals services available closer to home
  • high quality out-of-hospitals care
  • better health outcomes, fair access, reduced inequalities
  • enhanced patient experience through more joined-up services. 

You can view the papers from meetings of the Primary Care Co-Commissioning Committee here. The PCCC meetings are open for public attendance.

Who is on the PCCC?

The committee is chaired by a Lay Member, and to minimize conflicts of interest, only Lay Members or Executive Officers of the CCG are voting committee members.
