It’s fundamental that staff at the Trust are transparent and adhere to both our local policy and guidance set out by NHS England and declare any appropriate conflicts of interest against the clearly defined rules. Our ‘decision making staff’ are required to make either positive or nil declarations, aligned to each financial year. All other staff grades of staff are required to make positive declarations on receipt of any gift, hospitality or sponsorship or any known interest that may be a conflict to them and the Trust.
At Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, we have defined ‘decision making staff’ as Executives and Non-Executive Directors, those on Agenda for Change Band 8d and above and all Consultant staff.
