We keep a list of gifts and register of interests to ensure that every aspect of our work is beyond reproach.
Board Members are required to declare any personal or business interests they may have which may affect, or be perceived to affect, the conduct of their role as a Board Member. This includes any interests that may influence their judgement in the course of conducting the Board's business. Board Members must also declare any interests held by family members or persons or bodies with which they are connected.
The Register of Interests includes details of all Directorships and other relevant and material interests which have been declared by Board Members. The Register is held by the Board Secretary, and will be updated during the year, as appropriate, to record any new interests, or changes to the interests declared by Board Members. The Register will be subject to an annual review.
All staff are required to declare any gifts. A gift is an item of personal value, given by a third party e.g. a patient or supplier.
The Register of Gifts includes details of all gifts and sponsorships which have been declared by staff. The Register is held by the Board Secretary, and will be updated during the year, as appropriate, to record any new gifts received by members of staff. The Register will be subject to an annual review. Further guidance to the receipt of Gifts and Sponsorship will be available in the policies section shortly.
Information about the Corporate Risk Register can be found in the Board Governance section of the website.
