Registers and Declarations

The CCG is committed to the principles of transparent and open decision making. We have therefore established a policy to manage conflicts and potential conflicts of interest to ensure that decisions made by the CCG will be taken and seen to be taken without any possibility of the influence of external or private interests.

Our Conflict of Interest Guardian is the Lay Member for Audit. If you have any questions about the interests declared by members of the CCG, please direct your query to the Conflict of Interest Guardian using the Contact Us page.

 

Governing Body Membership and Register of Interests

The CCG keeps a register of interests for the members of the Governing Body, in order to identify and manage any conflicts of interest that may arise in the course of decision making when undertaking CCG business. These registers are reviewed regularly and updated as necessary.

 

Practice Staff Register of Interests

The CCG keeps a register of interests for all GP Partners and Practice Staff involved with the business or decision-making of the CCG (as defined by the CCG policy) in order to identify and manage any conflicts of interest that may arise in the course of decision making when undertaking CCG business. These registers are reviewed periodically and updated every six months on the website.

Staff have given their consent to publish this information. Where consent to publish has not been given, the Conflict of Interest Guardian reviews and considers whether the rationale for this is acceptable.

Latest Registers of Interests for individual declarations and declarations of Gifts, Hospitality and Honoraria can be found via the online ‘Declare’ system here.
