Guiding principles for sharing information on healthcare workers


04 / 01 / 2013

Revised and updated in July 2013, this guidance, developed in partnership between the NHS Employers organisation and the Independent Healthcare Advisory Services (IHAS), outlines how these principles can be introduced between healthcare organisations to share information, where a healthcare worker’s conduct or performance has been investigated and a substantiated risk to public and/or patient safety has been identified. The investigating healthcare organisation must consider that all alerted conduct, and/or performance, is proportionate, fair and necessary to achieve the legitimate aim of maintaining public and/or patient safety.
