NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group has published its 2020/21 Annual Report and Accounts.
Details about the CCG's activities, achievements, challenges and response to the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020/21 are detailed, as is information about the organisation’s finances and how governance requirements were met.
External Auditors KPMG were able to provide an unqualified opinion of the CCG's financial statements within the report and concluded that there were 'no significant weaknesses' in relation to its use of resources.
An unqualified opinion is an independent auditor's judgment that a company's financial statements are fairly and appropriately presented, without any identified exceptions, and in compliance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group Chief Executive, Dr Chris Clayton said: "Our 2020/21 Annual Report and Accounts reflect the breadth of work we have delivered during the last year. It is a factual report which details exactly what we have achieved in our response to the pandemic and how we organised ourselves at home and developed a whole range of new ways of working. It is a valuable record of what has been the strangest year of most of our working lives.
“We welcome feedback about people’s experience of their county health services, as well as views about how we can best shape health care to meet community and individual needs. We’re pleased to share this report to inform and support this ongoing work.
“I’d like to extend our sincere thanks to our staff, GP membership, Governing Body members, public and voluntary sector partners, and other NHS staff across Derbyshire, for their ongoing contribution towards keeping local people healthy and well whilst we continue to respond to the pandemic."
