City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) constitution
Our Constitution sets out the arrangements we’ve made to meet our responsibilities for commissioning care for our patients and the principles we will operate by with our partners. It describes the governing principles, rules and procedures that we operate by to ensure probity and accountability in the day-to-day running of the CCG to ensure that decisions are made in an open and transparent way with the interests of our patients and clinicians central to our goals and ambitions.
Our Constitution also contains our Standing Orders and Prime Financial Polices, while our Scheme of Reservation and Delegation is available separately in a standalone document
