The constitution sets out the arrangements made by the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to meet its responsibilities for commissioning care for the people for whom it is responsible. It describes the governing principles, rules and procedures that the group will establish to ensure probity and accountability in the day to day running of the CCG; to ensure that decisions are taken in an open and transparent way and that the interests of patients and the public remain central to the goals of the group.
For the first time in the history of the NHS, the constitution brings together in one place details of what staff, patients and the public can expect from the National Health Service. It also explains what you can do to help support the NHS, help it work effectively, and help ensure that its resources are used responsibly.
The Constitution sets out your rights as an NHS patient. These rights cover how patients access health services, the quality of care you’ll receive, the treatments and programmes available to you, confidentiality, information and your right to complain if things go wrong.
Information governance statement of compliance
The information governance statement of compliance (IG SoC) is the process by which organisations enter into an agreement with NHS CFH for access to the NHS National Network (N3). The process includes elements that set out terms and conditions for use of NHS CFH systems and services including the N3, in order to preserve the integrity of those systems and services.
The steps in the IG SoC process set out a range of security related requirements which must be satisfied in order for an organisation to be able to provide assurances in respect of safeguarding the N3 network and information assets that may be accessed.
