ABHI Statement on Conflicts of Interest

Topic : News and Press, Position Papers Type : Press Release

HealthTech companies have always worked closely with clinicians to design, develop and deliver new products to improve patient care. Relationships between industry and medical professionals must be transparent.

ABHI’s Code of Business Practice supports high standards of ethical and professional behaviour during interactions with NHS professionals, and the code requires that any financial, or in kind support, is reported to the NHS employer. NHS England’s Conflicts of Interest scheme also requires healthcare professionals to report such transactions, and the system does not allow for opting out.
