Northern Local Commissioning Group

The Northern Local Commissioning Group (LCG) is a committee of the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB). It covers the same geographical area as the Northern Health and Social Care Trust.

We are responsible for the commissioning of health and social care by addressing the care needs of our local population.

We also have responsibility for assessing health and social care needs, planning health and social care to meet current and emerging needs, and securing the delivery of health and social care to meet assessed needs.

To ensure that our work has genuine sensitivity and influence at a local level, our membership is made up of a range of professional interests such as –

GPs Nurses Dentists
Allied Health Professions Social Workers Pharmacists
Public Health Agency Representatives Local Government Representatives Voluntary and Community Representatives



Living Well Moyle – Supporting people with chronic conditions lead happier and healthier lives



View information on the Northern LCG Meetings. The current schedule,  along with the agenda and minutes of meetings are available.
