Primary Care Delegation

Thurrock CCG became delegated commissioners of primary care services from NHS England as of 01 April 2021.

The change to delegated commissioning in Thurrock means that decisions about comissioning in primary care will be made more locally. To reflect this change in the CCG's function, an updated Thurrock CCG Constitution has been published setting out these changes:
