All decisions by NHS Tees Valley CCG on the provision or acceptance of gifts and hospitality must be able to withstand both internal and external scrutiny. Casual gifts or offers of hospitality by contractors or others must not be in any way connected with the performance of duties so as to constitute an offence under the Bribery Act 2010 or not comply with the requirements of the NHS England Statutory Guidance on Declarations of Interest.
The CCG has robust processes in place to ensure that individuals do not accept gifts or hospitality or other benefits, which might reasonably be seen to compromise their professional judgement or integrity. The Standards of Business Conduct and Conflicts of Interest Policy provides further detail.
The current Gifts, Hospitality and Sponsorship Register is below:
Registers for the previous Darlington CCG, Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees CCG and South Tees CCG are provided in the legacy section.
