I am a CCG Pharmacy Technician working in the Clinical Pharmacy Team embedded within the Leeds GP Confederation which represents all GP practices in Leeds. This is made up sentence. Do I need a before "embedded"?Are "working in the..." and "embedded within..." reduced relative clauses? Are they defining or non defining clauses?Is it grammatically correct?

JigneshbharatiDo I need a comma before "embedded"?

No.

JigneshbharatiAre "working in the..." and "embedded within..." reduced relative clauses?

That's one name for them. They're also called participle phrases or participle clauses.

JigneshbharatiAre they defining or non defining clauses?

Defining.

JigneshbharatiIs it grammatically correct?

Yes. You can put a comma after "Confederation" because the following relative clause is non-defining.

I meant to ask " Do I need a comma before embedded...."?

How do confirm that it's non-defining?

Thank you CJ!

Ask yourself if there is another one, as follows.

the Leeds GP Confederation which represents all GP practices in Leeds

Is there another Leeds GP Confederation in addition to the one which represents all GP practices in Leeds?

For example, is there another Leeds GP Confederation which represents all GP practices in Cardiff? Another Leeds GP Confederation which represents all GP practices in York? Any others?

Or is the ONLY Leeds GP Confederation that one that represents all GP practices in Leeds?

If the Leeds GP Confederation we are talking about is the ONLY Leeds GP Confederation, then the words which represents all GP practices in Leeds do not add any information that identifies which of many Leeds GP Confederations we are talking about. No extra identifying information in the clause means the clause is not a defining clause.

So we write

the Leeds GP Confederation, which represents all GP practices in Leeds
