Union Board

16 November 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Union – Putting the needs of the community at the heart of commissioning

Since 2007, North East Lincolnshire Council and the North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group have been working very closely together to deliver health services in North East Lincolnshire. As this relationship has developed, both organisations looked forward to the next stage to consider how they could be better equipped to deal with the on-going challenges faced by local government and the NHS.

In 2017, a Union Board was established to integrate both organisations, as far as practicable and appropriate, in order to maximise use of our combined resources and focus. The focus being, to improve the health, care and wellbeing of the local population of North East Lincolnshire.

A Section 75 Agreement is now in place which allows a local authority and a CCG to jointly commission social care and public health services. This agreement represents a natural progression of the relationship between North East Lincolnshire Council and North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, but most important is that, the Union, (through the sum of its CCG and Council parts), operates in a manner that best serves the needs of the population and achieves outcomes that improve the health and wellbeing of the residents, patients and communities we serve.

The Union Board hold a public meeting at the Town Hall, Grimsby on a bi-monthly basis.
