Constitution

The NHS Tower Hamlets CCG Constitution sets out the means by which the CCG will commission the best quality care, drive better clinical outcomes for our patients and improve the performance of our providers in an open, transparent and fully accountable way.

The Constitution was last updated in February 2015 to reflect the fact that Tower Hamlets CCG has now taken on responsibility for commissioning GP services.

The Constitution sets out your rights as an NHS patient. These rights cover how you access health services, the quality of care you’ll receive, the treatments and programmes available to you, confidentiality, information and your right to complain if things go wrong.

The CCG has embedded the core values of the NHS Constitution within its own constitution. The NHS Constitution brings together in one place details of what staff, patients and the public can expect from the NHS. It also explains what you can do to help support the NHS, help it work effectively, and help ensure that its resources are used responsibly.
