Decisions

Decision to go to consultation

On 4 December, the Governing Bodies met in common in a meeting in public (view minutes) to discuss and approve the Pre-Consultation Business Case. At this meeting they agreed to approve the Pre-Consultation Business Case and move to consultation. These minutes are unconfirmed and will be discussed at the next Governing Body meeting.

Full papers from the meeting are available below:

Dates of future meetings are available on the CCGs' websites:

Next steps

The responses received during the consultation will be analysed independently and a report produced. The report will be carefully considered by the Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee, Healthwatch and North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs’ Governing Bodies before any final decisions are made. See Scrutiny & Assurance for more information.

The Governing Bodies will meet together but as they are separate organisations, they can make separate decisions for each area if they need to. This meeting will be held in public and we will publish all the relevant documents on this webpage.

Once the CCGs’ Governing Bodies have made their decisions, we will let everyone know the outcome in our newsletter (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), on this webpage and in our News & Documents as well as through social media and the press.

Then the hard work to implement any changes will begin. As described in Scrutiny & Assurance, NHS England and the Consultation Institute will monitor and check our decision making process.
