NHS Newark and Sherwood CCG Constitution

The NHS Newark and Sherwood Clinical Commissioning Group was formed in April 2011 and has always had an ambitious vision for healthcare in Newark and Sherwood. Achievement of this vision requires all of our practices to work together for the benefit of our population. We already have a strong track record of working together to improve care.

As a Clinical Commissioning Group we have statutory duties to commission the best possible healthcare within our resource envelope to continuously improve quality and to achieve financial balance. Failure to do so has on-going consequences for our population. We therefore have to operate in a transparent and inclusive manner, so that the best possible decisions can be made.

Our Constitution sets out how we govern ourselves and how we discharge our duties and responsibilities. It sets out our key processes for decision-making, including arrangements for transparency in the decision-making of the CCG and its governing body and provision for managing conflicts of interest. It also sets out the CCG’s responsibilities in terms of commissioning services, arrangements in place to secure patient and public participation, collaborative working arrangements with local stakeholders and commitment to meeting the requirements set out in the Equality Act 20101.
