The Quality and Safety Committee is chaired by the GP lead for quality. It meets monthly and is accountable to the Governing Body. This committee assures the Governing Body on the management of quality, safety and risk within the CCG. It monitors the work of the clinical quality review meetings with our main providers and the work of the Care Quality Commission locally (for example their assessments of nursing homes). It also reviews the red risks associated with quality and the serious incident reports.
The Terms of Reference for the Quality and Safety Committee can be found within our Governance Handbook.
