Our Vision and Values
“Creating a Healthier Hull”
The CCG Board has developed the following values:
- To listen – We will listen to all communities.

- To challenge – We are ready to challenge and be challenged.
- To innovate – We will strive for excellence.
In July 2015 our Board agreed to adopt a Behavioural Framework for the CCG. Adoption of the Framework will provide clarity as to the behaviours required within the CCG to support and encourage leadership at all levels of the organisation. You can view this here.
Our overall CCG strategic aims
- To improve life expectancy and reduce health inequalities.
- To work with partners to ensure services are integrated with those of the voluntary sector, community sector and the local authority in order to address the wider causes of poor health.
- To commission health care that delivers quality outcomes that are focused on the need of the individual and that treats people with compassion and dignity and is delivered in the most appropriate setting.
- To work with our partners to address the prevalence of smoking, obesity and substance misuse.
- To reduce the variation in the quality of care.
- To lead sustainable change to transform healthcare provision in Hull.
NHS Hull CCG will deliver its aims through achievement of the following objectives.
Principles on public involvement
NHS Hull CCG continues to meet its duty under section 14Z2 of the Health and Social Care Act and can demonstrate how the public voice is at the heart of everything we do and is truly embedded within the commissioning cycle. The CCG was rated ‘Good’ under the NHS England Assurance Rating Patient and Community Engagement (2016-17).
The CCG has a strong record of local engagement and partnership working and continues to build on its well established links with local communities, specialist interest groups, voluntary sector organisations, local businesses and our wider stakeholders and partners. The introduction new robust equality impact assessment process further strengthens the engagement process and ensures that we identify and speak to the right people, at the right time and in an inclusive and accessible way.
The organisation reflects its commitment within two of its strategic aims for 2017-18, which specifically relate to public engagement and patient experience, namely:
- Ensure that patient and public views contribute to the integrated commissioning process through a rolling programme of engagement
- Local services respond to patient insight and experience to improve services
