NHS Bromley CCG is committed to the principles of good governance, leading to open and transparent decision making. We have therefore established a policy to manage Conflict of Interests to ensure that decisions made by the CCG will be taken and seen to be taken without any possibility of the influence of external or private interests.
A Conflict of Interest (COI) occurs when a person’s ability to exercise judgement or act in a role could be (or could be seen to be) influenced by their involvement in another role or relationship.
How we manage Conflicts of Interests
In line with our Conflict of Interests Policy, arrangements to seek and receive declarations of interest and maintain appropriate Registers of Declared Interests have been put in place.
The CCG maintains registers of declared interests and gifts and hospitality for Governing Body Members, CCG employees and GP Members of the CCG. All employees are required to complete a declaration of interest form when they join and to declare any new interests within 28 days. The majority of employees have no interests to declare
The Register of declared interests and the gifts and hospitality register published here show all Governing Body members and any employees classed as decision making. (The CCG defines ‘decision making’ staff as those that have a material influence on how public money is spent. See the policy for full details).
