Policies, Procedures, Regulations and Strategies

Please see below a list of policies, procedures and regulations for Harrogate and Rural District CCG, including Equality Impact Analyses (EIA) and Sustainability Impact Assessments (SIA), where applicable.

HR Policies              

The below policies have been transferred over from the Commissioning Support Unit under a TUPE/ COSOP transfer with effect from 1 April 2016.

The policies will be reviewed by the CCG in due course, in the meantime any references to predecessor organisations, as the employing authority, should be read as 'HaRD CCG’ and will have effect as such. The policy will continue to apply as it did before transfer with the exception of any practicalities that need amending in line with the CCG’s Governance arrangements for example levels of delegated authority.

Any reference to predecessor organisations as an external provider of HR support should be read as having being updated in line with the CCG’s current provider of HR support.
