  • Conflicts of interest

    26 July 2016

    Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) manage conflicts of interest as part of their day-to-day activities. Effective handling of conflicts is crucial for the maintenance of public trust in the commissioning system. Importantly, it also serves to give confidence to patients, providers, Parliament and taxpayers that CCG commissioning decisions are robust, fair, transparent and offer value for money.

    PCC and Kennedys Law have designed this workshop on 15 September in Leeds to look at both corporate and individual accountability of commissioning organisations. It will help you to understand your responsibilities, put them in context within the healthcare environment and know what that means on the ground when making commissioning decisions.
