Constitution and CCG Governance Handbook

As of 1 April 2019, NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was established as a merged CCG and a statutory public body under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

The CCG has developed a Constitution which describes how it brings its116 GP member practices together to commission care for the residents of Derby and Derbyshire.

The CCG is a membership organisation which makes clinically driven decisions that will give patients and their carers a voice and put them at the heart of our work. 

Our Constitution sets out the powers that the member practices have decided to reserve to themselves as members of the CCG, and which powers they have decided to delegate to the Governing Body and its committees. It describes the governing principles, rules and procedures that the member practices have established to ensure accountability and probity in the day to day running of the CCG and to ensure that it remains true to its vision.

The Corporate Governance Handbook is designed to support the Constitution by bringing together a range of corporate statutory documents in one place. It is not a legal requirement; however it is an approach that will assist NHS Derby and Derbyshire CCG to build a consistent corporate approach and form part of the corporate memory.
