Both members will play an extremely important role in making sure our organisation takes a balanced and informed view in all areas of our commissioning activities. Lay Members also challenge the organisation to ensure all the decisions it makes are informed, fair and will be safe and sustainable for the people of North Cumbria. In addition, as a member of the Governing Body, they share responsibility to ensure that the CCG exercises its functions effectively, efficiently, economically, with good governance and in accordance with the terms of the CCG Constitution.
