Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust Policy for Conflict of Interest (previously Standards of Business Conduct)
The Trust, and the people who work with and for us, collaborate closely with other organisations, delivering high quality care for our patients.
These partnerships have many benefits and should help ensure that public money is spent efficiently and wisely. But there is a risk that conflicts of interest may arise.
Providing best value for taxpayers and ensuring that decisions are taken transparently and clearly, are both key principles in the NHS Constitution. We are committed to maximising our resources for the benefit of the whole community. As a Trust and as individuals, we have a duty to ensure that all our dealings are conducted to the highest standards of integrity and that NHS monies are used wisely so that we are using our finite resources in the best interests of patients.
This policy will help our staff manage conflicts of interest risks effectively. It:
- Introduces consistent principles and rules
- Provides simple advice about what to do in common situations.
- Supports good judgement about how to approach and manage interests
