The Joint Commissioning Committee


The Joint Commissioning Committee (JCC) was established by all seven North East London (NEL) CCGs – City and Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge – to discuss common issues and, in a limited number of areas, take decisions on services that are commissioned once across NEL. The committee will meet 5-6 times a year.

All NEL CCGs and local authorities are represented on the committee. The Chairing arrangements are shared between Dr Anil Mehta, the Chair of Redbridge CCG, Dr Muhammad Naqvi, the Chair of Newham CCG and Dr Mark Rickets, the Chair of City and Hackney CCG. The Vice-Chair is Kash Pandya Lay Member for Barking and Dagenham CCG.

 

Questions from members of the public: The Joint Commissioning Committee (JCC)

We want the North East London Commissioning Alliance (NELCA) and its Joint Commissioning Committee to be open and transparent about the ways it does business and make sure that local people and groups have the opportunity to ask questions about its work.

At each meeting we have allowed time on the agenda for questions from the public. Members of the public can ask one question on any of the issues on the agenda. A follow up question may be allowed at the Chair’s discretion and if time allows.

Questions to the The Joint Commissioning Committee (JCC) can be asked at any time, however to allow full responses to be given on the day of the meeting, we ask that any questions are submitted in advance, by 2pm on the Friday before the Wednesday meeting.  

Questions should be sent to newccg.nelenquiries@nhs.net or sent by post to:

NELCA Board Secretary
4th Floor Unex Tower
5 Station Street, London E15 1DA

A question may be rejected if it:

  1. is not about a matter for which the NELCA is responsible
  2. is defamatory, frivolous or offensive
  3. is substantially the same as a question asked within the last six months
  4. requests the disclosure of information which is confidential or exempt
  5. names, or clearly identifies, a member of staff or any other individual
  6. relates solely to an issue for a single CCG.

We request that questions are asked in person at the meeting, or by a representative. If a reply cannot conveniently be given orally, the time allocated for questions has elapsed or the questioner is not present in the chamber, a written reply will be sent, providing contact information has been provided, within a month of the meeting.

The question, the name of the questioner and the reply given will be included in the NEL CCG Governing Body in Common minutes and published on the CCGs’ websites.

  

Upcoming Meetings 

In line with the government’s COVID-19 guidelines, this meeting will be held virtually and recorded.  Please submit your questions relating to any agenda items as usual; there is time set aside to answer these.  A recording of the meeting will be uploaded for members of the public, media and other interested parties to listen to following the meeting.
