Our registers of interest enable the CCG and its clinicians in commissioning roles to demonstrate that they are acting fairly and transparently and in the best interests of their patients and local populations. Please see the most recent version of our Register of Declarations of Conflicts of Interest January 2017 and our Conflicts of Interest Policy October 2016
There is no evidence of identified breaches of the conflicts of interest policy in the last six months (as at 10 December 2016). A register of breaches is published here
CCGs are required to submit and publish quarterly self-certifications to NHS England to confirm processes are in place to manage conflicts of interest, registers have been published and whether any breaches have occurred.
These quarterly self-assessments (which began in Quarter 2, 2016-17) are published here:
An annual certification (in April 2017) will also confirm CCGs have:
- A clear policy.
- A minimum of three lay members.
- The Audit Chair has been appointed as conflicts of interest guardian.
- A minimum of 90% of staff have completed mandatory conflicts of interest training.
The certification will be published here when completed.
