The team manages these areas of our business:

Conflicts of interest

Declaring and managing conflicts of interests of general practice with CCG commissioning. A COI occurs where someone's ability to exercise judgement or act in one role is (or could be) impaired or influenced by the involvement in another role or relationship. The person or organisation doesn't need to exploit the position to obtain an actual benefit (financial or otherwise) for a COI to exist. COI is also about the potential  for competing interests and/or the perception of impaired judgement.

We all have an individual responsibility to declare interests and manage COI.

The team also manages risk, combats fraud in the NHS, manages information governance, is responsible for business planning and provides required assurances.
