NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group Constitution
The CCG Constitution sets out the arrangements made by the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to meet our responsibilities for commissioning care for the people for whom we are responsible. It describes the governing principles, rules and procedures that we have established 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 our goals.
The NHS Constitution brings together 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.
