Internal Communications Guidance & Criteria for Decision Making
The CCG has an agreed Constitution which sets out how we operate. It outlines how decisions are reached and what procedures are followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people.
The Constitution is divided into 10 parts and associated Appendices which set out basic rules governing the CCG’s business. Some of these processes are required by law, while others are a matter for the the CCG to choose.
Application of the provisions in the Constitution is monitored by the Audit Committee and any updates to the Constitution agreed through the CCG Board before being submitted for approval to NHS England.
A copy of the Constitution can be found here, which includes at Appendix D, the Scheme of Delegation to Committees of the Board and individual office holders.
