Primary Care Commissioning Committee

Primary Care Commissioning Committee

The role of the Primary Care Commissioning Committee is to carry out the functions relating to the commissioning of primary care in accordance with its statutory powers under section 13 of the National Health Service Act 2006 . NHS England has delegated the exercise of the functions to Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group, this includes:

  • Commissioning and monitoring of GP contracts
  • Commissioning of local services for the Wiltshire population
  • Decision making on whether to establish new GP practices in an area
  • Approving practice mergers
  • Making decisions on ‘discretionary’ payment (e.g. returner/retainer schemes)

In performing its role, the Primary Care Commissioning Committee will exercise its management of the functions in accordance with the agreement entered into between NHS England and NHS Wiltshire CCG, which will sit alongside the delegation and terms of reference.

The Primary Care Commissioning Committee reports to the CCG Governing Body.
