Governance Publications

Governance publications from NHS Humber and North Yorkshire ICB will be published on this page. The ICB has adopted legacy CCG Policies, as appropriate, on an interim basis.

Code of Conduct and Behaviours (Standards of Business Conduct Policy) – this policy sets out the principles of good business conduct, including the Nolan standards of public life, along with specific information on a variety of issues including the reporting of gifts and hospitality and the reporting of suspected fraud.

Conflicts of Interest Policy and Procedures (including Gifts, Hospitality and Sponsorship) – this policy sets out the ICB’s approach to conflict of interest (CoI) management, which is fully consistent with NHS England’s requirements for CoI management.

Constitution and Standing Orders – this sets out the board membership and governance arrangements for the organisation.
More information can be found here.

Governance Handbook includes:

  • Functions and Decisions Map offering a guide to the decision-making and accountability arrangements within the ICB and between the ICB and its wider partners within the Integrated Care System);
  • Scheme of Reservation and Delegation (SoRD) which provides the ICB with powers to delegate its functions to certain bodies (such as committees or collaboratives) and certain persons;
  • Operational Scheme of Delegation (OSD) which is a supporting document to the ICB’s Scheme of Reservation and Delegation and Standing Financial Instructions and provides operational guidance on the ICB delegation framework for all staff including interim or agency staff who work for the ICB;
  • Standing Financial Instructions (SFIs) these form part of the ICB’s control environment for managing the organisation’s financial affairs. They contribute to good corporate governance, internal control and managing risks. They enable sound administration, lessen the risk of irregularities and support commissioning and delivery of effective, efficient and economical services.
