Statement from the Chief Officer
The Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1 July 2011, aiming to tackle bribery and corruption in both the private and public sector.
Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) welcomes the Act and, in line with our commitment to ensuring that the work we do remains fair, honest and free of bribery, we will ensure compliance with the Act’s standards.
As an NHS organisation we follow good NHS Business Practice and have robust controls in place to prevent bribery. In addition, we have tested internal procedures to thoroughly investigate if any claims of bribery or corruption are made.
One of the six principles of the Act demands that there is top level commitment to the prevention of bribery and this is most certainly the case at CCG. Work has been undertaken to ensure our policies are consistent, that business partners also comply with the Act and that our staff understand the importance of openness at all times.
On behalf of the CCG I confirm our commitment to ensuring that the organisation is free of bribery and corruption.
