City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) constitution

The constitution sets out the arrangements made by NHS City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) 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 will establish 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.

NHS Long Term Plan 

The NHS Long Term Plan is to ensure the NHS is fit for the future. It aims to give everyone the best start in life, will deliver world-class care for major health problems such as cancer and mental health, and will help people age well.  

The plan has been developed with frontline health and care staff, patients, their families, and other experts, who will continue to shape how it is put in place across the country. 

Following our series of ‘Let’s Talk’ engagement events, over the next few months City and Hackney CCG will be working with patients, the public and partners - including local councils, the voluntary and community sector and social care – to develop local plans to turn the Long Term Plan national ambitions into local improvements for patients, building on the progress we've already made over the last few years.

Procedures of limited clinical value (POLCV)

NHS City and Hackney CCG have a duty to spend the money it receives from the Government in a fair and efficient way, taking into account the health needs of the whole local community. As there is only a set amount of money available to spend we sometimes have to make difficult decisions about which treatments are not routinely provided.

Some of these treatments are described in our Procedures of Limited Clinical Value policy (POLCV) 2014-15, which lists commonly requested treatments which are not routinely funded by the CCG.

Procurement Strategy

Procurement is the process of acquiring goods, works and services, covering both acquisitions from third parties and from in-house providers. This process spans the whole cycle from identification of needs, though to the end of a services contract or the end of the useful life of an asset.

Our policy and its appendices, sets out the procurement strategy for NHS City & Hackney CCG.

The CCG has developed this Procurement Strategy to include clear processes and guidance to support and inform the CCG's planning process, decision making and options for procuring works, goods and services in accordance with its statutory responsibilities, NHS requirements and the law.
