In accordance with the statutory guidance on conflicts of interest management published by NHS England in June 2016 and to further strengthen scrutiny and transparency of CCGs’ decision-making processes, the CCG has a Conflicts of Interest Guardian, details of which can be found in our Standards of Business Conduct & Conflicts of Interest Policy.
The Conflicts of Interest Guardian, in collaboration with the CCG’s Chief Corporate Services Officer:

On 1 May 2014 that NHS England invited CCGs to expand their role in primary care commissioning and to submit expressions of interest setting out the CCG’s preference for how it would like to exercise expanded primary medical care commissioning functions. One option available was that NHS England would delegate the exercise of certain specified primary care commissioning functions to a CCG.
In accordance with its statutory powers under section 13Z of the National Health Service Act 2006 (as amended), NHS England has delegated primary care commissioning to Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG.
The CCG has established the Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG Primary Care Commissioning Committee. The Committee will function as a corporate decision-making body for the management of the delegated functions and the exercise of the delegated powers. View Terms of Reference.

In 2016, NHS England published revised statutory guidance on the management of conflicts of interest with an expectation that CCGs will comply with the new requirements by the end of the year.
One of these new requirements is that all CCG staff must now declare any interests that they have every six months in order for these to be recorded and published on the CCGs Register of Interests. This includes full and part-time staff and each provider of primary medical services which is a member of the CCG under Section 140(1) of the 2006 Act.
The Register of Interests now includes:
Register of Interests and Log of Declarations
Hospitality and Gift Register -2017
Hospitality and Gift Register - 2016
