From 1 July 2022, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will be dissolved, and Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) will take over the responsibility for NHS functions and budgets. We will become part of NHS Humber and North Yorkshire ICB. You can continue to use this website to find the information you need, which remains relevant for the Hull area.

This month NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) pledged to support the White Ribbon Campaign and help to end male violence against women.

November 25 is ‘White Ribbon Day’ which will kick off 16 days of activism; encouraging people to take a stand and tackle the negative stereotypes which underpin abuse.

Dave Blain, the CCG’s Designated Professional for Safeguarding Adults, has signed up to become an ambassador for the campaign:

“Almost half of all women and girls will experience domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking in their lifetime.” he said.

“That’s a horrifying figure.”

“Violence against women and girls is often seen as a women’s issue, but at its heart it’s a men’s issue too. It’s up to us to help create a culture in which violence against women is unacceptable. That includes physical, verbal or emotional abuse.”

“As a White Ribbon Ambassador I work to promote a safer world for girls and women by helping men and boys to understand the vital role they can play. Taking a stand against violence in all its guises is the first step towards putting a stop to it once and for all.”

NHS Hull CCG is joined by colleagues and representatives from Humberside Fire and Rescue, Hull City Council, Humberside Police and Hull and East Yorkshire Hospital NHS Trust, which have also nominated ambassadors and will be taking part in the White Ribbon Campaign.

Although the White Ribbon Campaign focuses on violence against women and girls, NHS Hull CCG recognises that domestic abuse can happen to men too and supports an end to all domestic violence. The CCG is part of the Hull Domestic Abuse Partnership (DAP) which looks to tackle this issue alongside organisational partners.

Look out for more promotional material in the coming weeks which will be published and shared through our twitter account: @NHSHullCCG
