Meetings to be held in Public


Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield (DDES) CCG and North Durham CCG are working increasingly closely together. The two CCGs work in partnership with the same main providers of health services and together cover the same geographical area as Durham County Council.   With that in mind the two Governing Bodies have agreed to meet ‘in common’ wherever possible and will continue to rotate and alternate venues across both CCGs.


Two meetings will be held in public on:


Tuesday 21st November 2017 at:

The Greenhills Centre, Stephens Terrace, Wheatley Hill, Co Durham DH6 3JS


Primary Care Commissioning (PCC) Committees in Common

12.45 – 1.45pm


Governing Bodies in Common

2pm – 5pm


Each Clinical Commissioning Group wishes to invite the public to observe their PCC Committee and Governing Body at work.


In order to ensure that appropriate seating is provided, please register your attendance (informing of any special requirements) with Mags Wells on 0191 371 3224 or email:


Questions for the Governing Bodies in Common should be submitted to Mags Wells no later than 12 noon on Monday 13th November 2017. Meeting agendas and papers will be available prior to the meeting online at both: and



GP Training

We will have medical students and Physician Associate trainees joining us from September - December 2018 for short periods. With the patient’s consent students may sit in on consultations with the GP or nurse to learn about general practice.

Students are also occasionally asked, with the patient's consent, to carry out a consultation alone which is then discussed with the GP, student and patient.

You may be asked to consult with a 5th year medical student or Physician Associates before you see your GP. If you agree to see a medical student first, you will be assisting with their training and your cooperation will be appreciated. However the choice is yours and you do not need to have a consultation with a medical student if you prefer not to.

111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
