Our involvement structures

Our statutory obligations for involvement

Did you know the CCG must, by law, involve people in its business?

Under section 14Z2 of the National Health Service Act 2006 (as amended by the Health and Social Care Act 2012), our CCG has a duty to involve the public in commissioning.

These legal duties are in place to ensure CCGs such as ours involve people in the planning, prioritisation and purchasing of health services for our area, particularly where there will be an impact on service delivery or the range of services offered to our population.

You can read more about our duty for public involvement and consultation as a clinical commissioning group by reading section 14z2, page 41, of the Health and Social Care Act 2012: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2012/7/pdfs/ukpga_20120007_en.pdf

To fulfil the public involvement duty, we must make arrangements for the public to be involved in the planning of services and the development and consideration of proposals for changes which might impact on services.

Our involvement structures

Our CCG has a number of structures, processes and assurance methods in place which help us more effectively involve our population in commissioning.

In this section, we will outline some of those methods and demonstrate how the CCG has fulfilled its statutory duties of patient and public participation in commissioning health and care.
