NHS Thurrock CCG Constitution
The Constitution sets out the arrangements made by NHS Thurrock Clinical Commissioning Group to meet its responsibilities for commissioning care for the people for whom it is responsible. It describes the governing principles, rules and procedures that the Group will establish to ensure probity and accountability in the day to day running of the Group; to ensure that decisions are taken in an open and transparent way and that the interests of patients and the public remain central to the goals of the Group.
Thurrock CCG has now been established for over four financial years, with the fourth running from 01 April 2016 to 31 March 2017. All NHS organisations are required by law to publish annual reports, detailing financial accounts, and to present them in public at an Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The final annual report is also submitted to NHS England after internal sign-off. Our annual report and accounts for this financial year can be found below. The purpose of this document is to look back at our key achievements, work areas and finances over last year, as well as plans and priorities for the coming year and beyond.
Annual Business Plan, Strategic Direction and Documents
Mid and South Essex Success Regime
The Mid and South Essex Success Regime is one of three national initiatives designed to support the most challenged health and care systems across the country.
The regime in Essex covers hospitals and NHS providers in the south of the county plus the CCGs that commission the services, including Thurrock CCG. The two to three year programme will see hospitals, GP surgeries and other NHS service providers work together to address deep-rooted pressures and secure high quality care.
The Success Regime will bring managerial and financial support to the region. It will help facilitate the developments of local plans that will set out how care will be transformed in a sustainable way. For more information on these plan, visit the Success Regime webstie.
