Full Council of Members

Homepage » About us » Full Council of Members

As a Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS North Cumbria CCG is a membership organisation made up of GP member practices. In total all of the 39 GP Practices across West, North and East Cumbria are members and make up the full council.


The Full Council of Members defines the coming-together of the 39 GP member practices to agree changes to the constitution and debate any significant policy or financial change which the members feel necessary.

The Council shall meet at least once annually to agree any changes to the Constitution and to ensure publication of the Annual Report and Accounts by the Governing Body. 

Remit & responsibilities of the Council:

The Council will ensure that the CCG has appropriate arrangements in place to exercise its functions effectively, efficiently and economically and in accordance with clearly established principles of good governance.  It will:

(1) retain for itself only those matters set out in the CCG’s Scheme of Delegation

(2) will apply best practice in decision making processes and shall have full authority to commission any reports or surveys it deems necessary to help it fulfil its obligations

(3) shall conduct its business in accordance with national guidance and relevant codes of conduct / good governance practice

(4) at least annually the Council will review its own performance, membership and terms of reference.  Any resulting changes to the terms of reference or membership requires Council approval.

There is no requirement for these meetings to be held in public, however, during the full council of members meeting on 5 June 2013, the GP members voted unanimously to hold future Full Council of Members meetings in Public. See more in our news story here>>|
