City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group Engagement Strategy for 2016-17 is available here. This document is pending an internal review and will feed into a more comprehensive Integrated Commissioning Engagement Strategy which will be developed during 2017.
The City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group has published its fourth Annual Report and Accounts.
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.
Five Year Plan (updated November 2014)
Transparency is an important value for our CCG, embedded in our constitution and underpinning how we work.

In some circumstances, your doctor may think you have exceptional clinical circumstances and may benefit from a treatment which is not routinely provided.
Requests for such treatments must be made through an Individual Funding Request (IFR)
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 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.
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.
