Published on Friday; NHS England has issued statutory guidance on conflicts of interest, which includes specific provisions for co- commissioning of primary care services.
Although it is particularly relevant for CCGs considering governance arrangements for co-commissioning, CCGs should note that it supersedes previous guidance on managing conflicts of interests across the range of CCG responsibilities.
The document is available to download via our LIBRARY area within our website and I sense it will become a key document in 2015, particularly where the CCGs get themselves I to knots over COI, when you as Federation Leads should then be able to use this guidance to challenge any disproportionate responses.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org
