Good governance is fundamental to effective Clinical Commissioning Groups. 

This guide starts by considering what is meant by good corporate governance, the principles that underpin it, and what members of governing bodies can do to translate these principles into action. It refers to the Nolan Principles and the CIPFA/IFAC good governance framework. 

The Insight gives an overview of the roles and responsibilities of governing body members and their importance in ensuring effective financial management.
