Clinical Commissioning Groups are required to make arrangements to manage actual or potential conflicts of interest so that decisions made by the CCG are made (and, importantly, are seen to be made) without the possibility of the influence of external or private interest.
A conflict of interest occurs where an individual’s ability to exercise judgement or act in one role is or could be impaired or otherwise influenced by his or her involvement in another role or relationship. The individual does not need to exploit his or her position or obtain an actual benefit, financial or otherwise. A potential for competing interests and/or perception of impaired judgement or undue influence can also be a conflict of interest.
Whilst the delegation of responsibility and budgets for commissioning primary medical services puts the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in a stronger position to deliver the transformation agenda – it also exposes the organisation to a greater risk of conflicts of interest, both real and perceived.
The CCG has a number of systems and processes in place to manage conflicts of interests – both real and perceived. These are set out in the CCG’s Constitution and our Policy on the Management of Conflicts of Interest. They include registers of interest for our Governing Body and committees, Associates and Subject Specialists, staff and CCG members.
