Council of Representatives

The Council of Representatives are clinical representatives that have been nominated by each practice. Each clinical representative also has a named, clinically qualified deputy that attends the meetings in the absence of the main representative.

Primary duties

The primary duties of the Council of Representatives are to:

  • engage with the clinical commissioning process to provide local intelligence to inform commissioning decisions;
  • support the development of a local healthcare strategy that fits the needs of the local population; and
  • support the Governing Body in the managing, monitoring and redesigning of service delivery to meet local healthcare needs.
