Here you will find information about our legacy policies and procedures from Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin CCG. We are currently in the process of adapting these for NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.

This webpage will be regularly reviewed to ensure it is as up-to-date as possible.

Policy for the Management of Fertility Treatment

This policy sets out the criteria for access to secondary and tertiary level fertility services (intrauterine insemination (IUI), in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) and IVF with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)) for the population covered by Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group. Access to fertility services is governed by the same principles as all other services, namely clinical effectiveness, cost effectiveness and the outcomes of the CCG’s Commissioning Needs Assessments.


Commissioning Policy for the Provision of NHS Funded Gamete Retrieval and Cryopreservation of Gametes and Embryos for the Preservation of Fertility

This policy lays out the CCG commissioning intentions regarding the retrieval and storage of gametes for patients in certain clinical circumstances.


Job Matching and Rebanding Policy

The policy outlines the procedure for rebanding posts that fall within the scope of Agenda for Change (excluding medical, dental and those on local terms and conditions and on very senior manager/Governing Body contracts), either on a substantive or temporary basis.


Patients Changing Responsible Commissioner

This policy applies to any patient in circumstances where Shropshire Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (STWCCG) is the responsible commissioner for their NHS care.


It equally applies to any patient needing medical treatment where the Secretary of State has prescribed that the CCG is the responsible commissioner for the provision of that medical treatment as part of NHS care to that person.


Where responsibility for providing NHS services to the patient has been transferred to STWCCG, STWCCG will, subject to the terms of this policy, honour existing funding commitments made by the patient’s previous NHS commissioner.


The terms of this policy outline the circumstances where STWCCG will and will not honour existing funding commitments.


Defining the boundaries between NHS and private healthcare

This policy defines the boundaries between NHS and Private Healthcare for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). It considers joint NHS and private funding and NHS continuation of funding of care commenced on a private basis (including clinical trials and compassionate use programmes). The policy recommendations set out in this document apply to any patient in circumstances where the CCG is the responsible commissioner for their NHS care.


Overtime Policy

This policy sets out the arrangements for overtime payments under the Agenda for Change terms and conditions of employment.


Special Allocation Scheme (Violent Patients) Information for referring practices

A Special Allocation Scheme (SAS) is in place for Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin CCG patients and is provided by: Marden Medical Practice (Shropshire patients) and Dawley Medical Practice (Telford patients)

The following guidance is intended to clarify the situations in which it would be appropriate to remove a patient from your list for referral to the Special Allocation Scheme, and the process that should be followed.


Prevent Policy

The primary aim of this policy is to ensure that adults at risk of harm and vulnerable children are protected from any form of radicalisation and that staff members, and volunteers are able to identify any possible signs of radicalisation and raise their concerns with their line manager.


Business Continuity Plan

Business continuity planning forms an important element of good business management and service provision. All business activity is subject to disruptions such as technology failure, flooding, utility disruption and terrorism. Business Continuity Management (BCM) provides the capability to adequately react to operational disruptions, while protecting welfare and safety.

This plan is to be used to assist in the continuity and recovery of Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin CCG in the event of an unplanned disruption.  A disruption could be any event which threatens personnel, buildings or operational capacity and requires special measures to be taken to restore normal service. This could be a matter specifically relating to STWCCG or as part of a wider incident that affects a broader range of system partners


    Standard Infection Control Precautions Policy

    This policy exists to help protect CCG staff, the public and other stakeholders from the risks of infection and for the CCGs to comply with national guidance and legislation.


    Uniform and Dress Code Policy

    The Uniform & Dress Code Policy is designed to guide managers and employees on the application of the CCG standards of dress and appearance.


    Failed Contact Protocol for all Staff working with Children and Young People

    Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (STWCCG) acknowledges practitioners are often faced with difficult decisions when they are unable to make contact with or gain access to clients or clients and their carers disengage.  This protocol is to be used by staff when unable to make contact with or obtain access to children and young people.
