We want people to get involved and influence local health services. As a CCG, putting patients, carers and service users at the centre of our plan and getting their input is very important. When major plans are being considered to the way services are being delivered we want to hear what you have to say so that these views are integral in helping us make decisions.
In addition to local consultations we will bring to your attention national and regional consultations which might be of interest. For more information on NHS England consultations click here
Details of past consultations coordinated by Herts Valleys Clincal Commissioning Group and their partners will be accessible using the information below.
Hertfordshire CCGs identified they needed to make the best use of the money available, so that as many people can be helped as possible to live healthier, longer lives, avoiding preventable illnesses.
There was simply not enough money to do everything and continue as before – we consulted across Hertfordshire to hear views about some difficult decisions on how to spend the money available to the local NHS.

Consultation for the relocation of Moorfields Eye Hospital from City Road to St Pancras
Committees in Common meeting - Launch of consultation for the relocation of Moorfields Eye Hospital from City Road to St Pancras
DATE: Wednesday, 24 April 2019
TIME: 5.30pm – 6.30pm
LOCATION: The Wesley Euston Hotel and Conference Venue, 81-103 Euston Square, London, NW1 2EZ
Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and its research and education partner, the University College London (UCL) Institute of Ophthalmology have been exploring the opportunity to move services from their existing premises in City Road and Bath Street in Islington to the St Pancras hospital site in Camden by 2025/26. Moorfields Eye Hospital has been exploring options since 2013.
Moorfields services are commissioned by CCGs across England, as well as NHS England Specialised Commissioning, with 14 London and Hertfordshire commissioners holding significant contracts (defined as > £2m per annum). These 14 constitute the “lead” CCGs in this process.
In order to proceed to public consultation, a decision of the 14 lead Clinical Commissioning Groups* is required to endorse that they have received sufficient assurance in relation to the pre-consultation business case.
Please see the papers below:
Coming to the meeting
Members of the public are very welcome to attend the meeting, listen to the discussions and observe our decision-making process. Important to note that the Committees in Common is held in public, and not a 'public meeting'.
Members of the public can ask questions about the Committees in Common agenda items before the meeting. Any questions relating to the agenda must be submitted to the firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on Tuesday 23rd April. We will endeavour to provide answers at the beginning of the meeting (in the ‘questions from the public’ agenda item), or in writing afterwards, depending on the number and complexity of questions we receive. We have set a limit of three questions per individual or organisation. However, questions and feedback can, of course, also be submitted outside of our formal meetings through our normal communication channels. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions relating to agenda items at the meeting during the ‘Questions from the public’ agenda item. This agenda slot will include questions asked in advance of the meeting and questions asked on the day, and will be managed at the Chair’s discretion within the time available.
*The 14 CCGs directly involved with Moorfields Consultation are NHS Camden CCG, NHS Islington CCG, NHS Barnet CCG, NHS City and Hackney CCG, NHS Ealing CCG, NHS East and North Hertfordshire CCG, NHS Enfield CCG, NHS Haringey CCG, NHS Havering CCG, NHS Herts Valley CCG, NHS Newham CCG, NHS Redbridge CCG, NHS Tower Hamlets CCG, NHS Waltham Forest CCG.
