Our constitution

NHS Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group has a constitution, which has been signed up to by all of its 62 member practices and which sets out various matters including:

  • The arrangements that it has made to discharge its functions and those of its governing body
  • Its key processes for decision making, including arrangements for securing transparency in the decision making of the group and its governing body; and
  • The arrangements made for discharging its duties with regard to registers of interest and managing conflicts of interest. 

The following appendices are an integral part of the document, with aspects of the requirements of Part 1 of Schedule 1A of the National Health Service Act 2006 (inserted by Schedule 2 of the 2012 Act) addressed in the appendices rather than the main body of the constitution.

  • Standing Orders – which set out the arrangements for meetings and the appointment processes for the group’s representatives and Governing Body members
  • Overarching Scheme of Reservation and Delegation – which sets out those decisions that are reserved for the membership as a whole and those decisions that are the responsibilities of the group’s Governing Body (and its committees) and employees
  • Prime Financial Policies – which set out the arrangements for managing the group’s financial affairs.
