Conflicts of Interest

East Cheshire NHS 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. To guard against this and in the interests of full transparency, the trust has a comprehensive Conflict of Interest Policy and publishes all staff declarations here on its dedicated declaration web portal. Frequently asked questions are answered hereA summary of the current declarations of interest for the Executive Directors, Non-Executive Directors and Deputy Directors of the Trust can be found here.

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 an organisation 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.
