How We Spend Your Money
NHS Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) buys health services for Bolton with money given to us each year by the Government. We have a responsibility to manage our budget carefully to improve the health of Bolton and deliver value for money. This is public money so we’re accountable to local people for how we spend it. The CCG takes this responsibility very seriously and we are committed being open and transparent.
Each month we publish a transparency report on this page that lists all our expenditure over £25,000. Reports will be published below by the fifteenth working day of the following month. If you have any questions about our transparency reports and expenditure, please email BOLCCG.FOI@nhs.net.
Our Chief Finance Officer presents a finance performance report at our board meeting each month. Details of our board meetings and previous reports can be found on the board meetings page.
Our annual accounts are published each year in our annual report and presented at our annual general meeting. Our annual reports can be found on the about us page.
However, it’s not just about spending money. We can only invest in improving health services, so they meet the needs of local people, if we make savings in other areas. Each year the CCG puts a plan in place, setting out how we will find the savings we need and where we can re-invest money to delivery real benefits for Bolton people.
In line with the Local Accountability Act 2014, clinical commissioning groups are required to procure and locally appoint their own auditors for 2017/18 and subsequent years. Following a procurement process, Bolton CCG has awarded a contract for external audit services to KPMG. The contract award notice can be viewed online.
