This guidance is intended to protect patients, taxpayers and staff covering health services in which there is a direct state interest. It comes into force on 1 June 2017 | NHS England
This guidance aims to strengthen the management of conflicts of interest within the NHS and to ensure transparent and accountable health care. The guidance permits NHS staff to receive small tokens or gifts but will require them to decline anything that could be seen to affect their professional judgement. It will also be standard practice for NHS commitments to take precedence over private practice, and for any member of staff – clinical or non-clinical – to declare outside employment and the details of where and when this takes place although not earnings at this stage.
