The Board

The board makes sure that decisions, recommendations and plans are carried out appropriately and effectively and are efficiently managed.  All CCGs must have in place an agreement that is not only signed by, but developed with, all of the member practices.

Meetings will be held in public to ensure open and transparent discussion and information sharing, but also in private when confidential matters arise.  The board has 15 members including nine local doctors and nurses led by appointed Chair, Dr Nina Pearson.  The board meets monthly and is responsible for ensuring that Luton CCG's strategy is being delivered.
