Governing Body Meetings and Papers
Patients, members of the public and other stakeholders are invited to the Governing Bodies meetings in public.
You are very welcome to attend the meetings on a first come, first served. Your question/s should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to give us time to prepare a reply, this should be received by us by email by 12 noon on the Thursday which precedes the date of the meeting.
Questions may be submitted by Nene residents and patients registered with a member GP practice. They should be pertinent to the agenda of the next Governing Bodies meeting in Common. If you have any pecuniary interest in the subject of the question, this should be declared. Complex questions or those which require particular research, or data retrieval or analysis may be deferred and answered at a future Governing Bodies meeting in Common, or directly in writing.
Grounds for not accepting public questions include, but are not limited to:
- It would cost too much or take too much staff time to deal with the question.
- The question is vexatious.
- The question has previously been answered by the CCG in the last six months and placed in the public domain
- The answer could prejudice a criminal investigation or commercial confidentiality.
- The answer relates to personal data, which if released would be contrary to the Data Protection Act.
- The decision of the Chair of the Governing Bodies meeting in Common on whether to accept a question, and how it should be answered, is final.
