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:

Thurrock CCG Constitution - March 2021

As part of this new way of working, Thurrock CCG has set up a Primary Care Commissioning Committee (PCCC) which is a sub-committee of our Governing Body. For more information about the committee, visit the Primary Care Commissioning Committee meetings page.

Reporting the death of someone with a learning disability

A programme is collecting death reports of people with learning disabilities to help reduce the number of early deaths.

People with learning disabilities are four times as likely to die of preventable causes compared with the general population. The Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme aims to help reduce premature mortality and health inequalities for people with learning disabilities in England through local reviews of deaths.
