Conflicts of Interest

The GCC has joined other UK healthcare regulators to agree a joint statement on handling conflicts of interest.

It sets out the expectations of how healthcare professionals should act in relation to avoiding, declaring and managing actual or potential conflicts of interest across all healthcare settings.  It is intended to support the GCC Code.

The Statement, agreed by all nine regulators overseen by the Professional Standards Authority, has been signed on behalf of the GCC by Chief Executive, Rosalyn Hayles.

 

The Joint Statement can be found in English here and in Welsh here.

Illustrative case scenarios
