Corporate Objectives

CCGs are required to set objectives that are capable of some degree of measurement using the approach set out in their risk management strategy and policy. Risks throughout the organisation can then be aligned to these objectives.

This forms part of the system of internal controls which are audited on an annual basis and which need to be accounted for by the CCGs in their annual governance statements using the template in the Department of Health and Social Care Manual of Accounts Guidance.
