NHS England requires clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to publish conflict of interest information as set out below. The revised guidance forms part of a system-wide governance project to improve conflicts of interest management across the NHS and increase public confidence in decision-making processes. You can read more about this project on the NHS England Board website here.
- The Governing Body Register of Interests for March 2017 is available here. Conflicts of Interests are refreshed on a quarterly basis for review by the Joint Audit Committee and publication on the website. In accordance with NHS England Statutory Guidance on Managing Conflicts of Interest for CCGs, we also maintain a Register of Interests for Council of Practice Members and a Register of Interests for Employees. These are available from the CCG on request.
