Managing conflicts of interest

Why the management of conflicts of interest is important

NHS Norfolk and Waveney CCG are responsible for commissioning healthcare services to improve the health and wellbeing of people who live here. It decides which services are most need and pays local hospitals and other healthcare providers to provide these services. Effective handling of conflicts of interest is therefore crucial to give confidence that commissioning decisions are robust, fair, and transparent and offer value for money.

How NHS Norfolk and Waveney CCG manages conflicts of interest

The CCG takes its responsibility to manage conflicts of interest seriously and has a Standards of Business Conduct Policy. This policy sets out how the CCG Governing Body members, officers, staff, members, and clinical leads should behave in their role. It also sets out the steps and measures that the CCG takes to manage conflicts of interest.

The policy requires those people referred to above to declare any and all interests which may be or may lead to, a conflict of interest.

What happens when a conflict of interest is identified?

When a conflict of interest is identified it should always be disclosed, as openness and transparency allow for conflicts and potential conflicts of interest to be assessed and managed. This includes publishing all conflicts of interest on a Register of Interests (see below).

The CCG manages the risk of improper or undue influence carefully in a variety of ways, for example excluding that person from any decision-making in relation to their conflict.
