Our position on bribery

The Bribery Act 2010 aims to tackle bribery and corruption in both the private and public sectors. It’s an Act we fully comply with.


We have zero tolerance on bribery or any kind of fraud. We have robust controls in place to help deter, detect and deal with it. These are reviewed annually, as are our Standing Financial Instructions and Fraud Action Plan.

It’s vital to us that staff, contractors and agents understand what’s expected of them and their duties to disclose and deal with any instances they find.

Should you wish a copy of our Fraud Action Plan please contact Martin Bell, Interim Director, Strategy and Governance by emailing martin.bell4@nhs.net  

Our Standing Financial Instructions are available on our Board Meetings page.
