Constitution and Memorandum of Understanding

In April 2013 NHS Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was established as a statutory public body under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

The CCG has developed a Constitution which describes how it brings its 55 GP member practices together to commission care for the residents of Southern Derbyshire. 

The CCG is a membership organisation which makes clinically driven decisions that will give patients and their carers a voice and put them at the heart of our work. 

Our Constitution sets out the powers that the member practices have decided to reserve to themselves as members of the CCG, and which powers they have decided to delegate to the Governing Body and its committees. It describes the governing principles, rules and procedures that the member practices have established to ensure accountability and probity in the day to day running of the CCG and to ensure that it remains true to its vision.

The Memorandum of Understanding was designed to support the Southern Derbyshire CCG Constitution by setting out how the membership of the CCG will operate in relation to each other in order to deliver the mission, strategic priorities and statutory functions and duties. This Agreement should be read with and considered in the light of the Constitution.
