Dear NHS Birmingham South Central Clinical Commissioning Group,

This is a FOIA request about conflicts of interest in Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).

1. Please state the names of all current CCG board members who have declared a business interest (such as a GP practice) as a potential conflict of interest. For each of these board members please state:

a) Full name
b) The date on which the interest was declared
c) The name and nature of the interest
d) Whether the business interest has ever been a supplier to the CCG.

2. Please provide a copy of your policy for managing conflicts of interest.

3. Please provide blank copies of all the forms which are used to assess, mitigate or otherwise manage board members’ conflicts of interest.

4. Please state the sum value and nature of monthly business transaction between the CCG and board member’s business interest in the past 12 months (as of 06/06.17).

Thank you for the time you will invest in preparing a response to this request. I am grateful to you and the NHS for the services you provide.

If you consider that some information is exempt from disclosure please cite the section of the FOIA you are using to redact information. In line with the spirit and intent of the legislation, please do not withhold information on a 'blanket' basis and ensure any redactions you make are sufficiently granular.

Where applying exemptions which contain a public interest text, please also explain, in line with the guiding principles of the Information Tribunal, how the public interest would be, or would be likely to be, materially prejudiced by disclosure. I would prefer to receive all information in electronic format and in machine-readable formats where applicable. I would be grateful if you could acknowledge receipt of this request.

Thank you,

Lucas Amin
