NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is holding a Governing Body meeting in public on Tuesday 6 May 2014 at 1pm at its offices. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

The role of the Governing Body is to oversee the work of the CCG and ensure arrangements are in place to allow the organisation to effectively carry out its duties.
