Class 2: What we spend and how we spend it

There is a range of information published regarding our financial resources and how we are spending it this includes:

Annual accounts

We will publish our annual accounts along with our annual audit letter from our external auditors on our website when available each year.

Budgets

Every year the CCG approves its financial plan for the year as part of its overall commissioning strategy and operating plan. In addition the Board receives a financial report each time its meet to review variances against plans, risks and issues, mitigating and rectification actions. These can be found as part of our Board papers (more details on our board papers can be found on this website).

Financial governance

We have a range of policies and procedures which govern our financial management arrangements. These include our:

  • Standing orders
  • Scheme of Reservation and Delegation
  • Prime financial policies

These can all be found in the CCG’s constitution, which can be found in the 'our strategy documents' section of this website (under the 'About us' section).

Board members and senior staff allowances and expenses

Information on these will be contained in our annual accounts each year.

High cost payments

We publish monthly information regarding payments made over a value of £25,000.

Staff pay arrangements

With the exception of Board members the CCG’s directly employed staff are employed on the national Agenda for Change pay scales and grading system, details of which can be found here.

Board members pay, prior to the CCG taking on responsibilities as an employer, was established locally and approved by our predecessor (and former host organisation) Hampshire Primary Care Trust Remuneration Committee. Since 2013 the CCG’s remuneration arrangements are now overseen by the CCG’s Remuneration Committee, chaired by our deputy Chair and lay member for governance.

Procurement arrangements

The CCG has a procurement framework which sets out its approach to procurement.  

Details of any contracts currently being tendered by us can be found on the Official Journal of the European Community (OJEC is now recognised as OJEU - the Official Journal of the European ). This is the publication in which all tenders from the public sector which are valued above a certain financial threshold according to EU legislation must be published.

As well as being published on the Supplying to the NHS website an online resource that advertises opportunities to provide Part B clinical services commissioned by the NHS in England.

On these sites you will also find information about contracts awarded.
