All Gifts over the value of £50 should only be accepted on behalf of the CCG and not in a personal capacity and must be declared to the Corporate Team at the CCG as described in the policy. Multiple gifts from the same source over a 12 month period should be treated in the same way as gifts over £50 where the cumulative value exceeds £50.
Hospitality should be declared as per the guidance set out in the policy. When accepting or providing hospitality, staff should be able to demonstrate that the acceptance or provision of hospitality would benefit the NHS or CCG. Hospitality must only be accepted when there is a legitimate business reason and it is proportionate to the nature and purpose of the event.
