West Yorkshire and Harrogate Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)
The Joint Committee was established in June 2017. The Committee has delegated powers from individual CCGs to make collective decisions around specific work programmes, for example mental health, urgent care and stroke.
The Committee works closely with partners including councils, hospitals and community and mental health trusts so that there is a clearer understanding of, and shared solutions to, health priorities to ensure better access to consistently high quality care.
The Joint Committee has an independent lay chair and two lay members and their role is to act as advocates for public interests. The Committee meets in public every two months.
