NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group (HMR CCG) Governing Body is led by local GPs and includes representation from Rochdale Borough Council and Healthwatch Rochdale. Governing Body members
The monthly Governing Body meetings are where official business is discussed and formal decisions are made about everything from policies to which health services will be commissioned.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend these meetings.
Declarations of interest
The CCG Register of Interests includes all interests declared by members, employees, governing body members and members of committees or sub-committees of NHS HMR CCG. The interests which must be declared are explained in the declarations of interest form.
Public questions are welcome and can either be submitted in advance, through the online form, or asked during the open questions slot at beginning of each meeting.
You can choose whether to attend and ask the question yourself or whether you would prefer the question to be asked on your behalf.
We request that any one submitting questions in advance of the Governing Body meeting, does so at least 24 hours before the meeting begins. This will allow sufficient time for the question to be picked up and processed before the meeting takes place.
Unfortunately, it won't be possible for the Governing Body to answer questions about individual circumstances or that involve confidential information. Questions of this nature can be directed to our patient advice and liaison service (PALS).
You can ask a formal question by writing to:
CCG Governing Body Secretary
NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale CCG
PO Box 100
