Each committee has established Terms of Reference that are reviewed and updated on an annual basis.
NHS Swindon expects their managers to adhere to the NHS Code of Conduct and this is recorded in all committee Terms of Reference. The code serves two purposes:
- To guide NHS managers and employing health bodes in the work they do and the decisions and choices they have to make;
- To reassure the public that these important decisions are being made against a background of professional standards and accountability.
