Since their inception NHS Nene Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS Corby Clinical Commissioning Group (collectively known and the Northamptonshire CCGs) have had a long standing history of collaborative working. Over the past 12 months the CCGs have made significant progress in moving towards a joint operating model to further enhance the value and quality of services commissioned on behalf of the population of Northamptonshire, and drive the efficiency of internal operations. The CCGs are seeking to build upon this work further over the next 12 months and as such have agreed to streamline Governing Body Meeting arrangements. The CCGs have agreed that as of April 2019 the two Governing Bodies will hold their meetings together in what is known as a Committee in Common format. In addition to this, it has been agreed that the Governing Bodies Meetings in Common in Public shall be conducted on a bi-monthly basis.
