On Thursday 2 May 2019 local elections will take place across central Lancashire.
From 18 March 2019 the pre-election period begins and this will have an impact on how the CCG communicates with local residents and wider stakeholders.
Public sector bodies are expected to abide by certain restrictions in the run up to and during elections. This is sometimes referred to as “Purdah” although this is seen by some to carry cultural connotations and therefore is also now described as the 'pre-election period'.
NHS clinical commissioning groups, Trusts, local authorities and their employees (or those who work on their behalf) are required to observe this pre-election period
The pre-election period has an impact on how public bodies can go about their work. During the pre-election period public bodies should not carry out any activity which could be seen to be politically controversial, such as making or promoting changes to services. As a result the CCG will be undertaking limited communication or engagement initiatives across Preston, Chorley and South Ribble. During this period it is important that the CCG acts and is seen to act, in a politically neutral manner.
