General Election Guidance

We are now in what is known as the pre-election period (also referred to as purdah).  This always applies to the NHS in the run up to a general election.  To help us pre-election guidance has been published.

What does it mean for the CCG?

The key principles of the guidance are:

  • the day to day operations of the NHS must continue unimpeded
  • as always, the NHS must act and be seen to act with political impartiality, and its resources must not be used for party political purposes
  • during the election period, democratic debate between candidates and parties should not be overshadowed by public controversy begun from NHS bodies themselves.

If you require any advice please speak to Helen Crumley or contact the regional NHS public affairs lead, Nader Khalifa
