Modern Slavery Act 2015
The Trust is fully aware of the responsibilities it bears towards patients, employees and the local community and as such, there is a strict set of ethical values that are used as guidance with regard to commercial activities. It is therefore expected that all suppliers to the Trust adhere to the same ethical principles.
In compliance with the consolidation of offences relating to trafficking and slavery within the Modern Slavery Act 2015, the Trust is currently reviewing its supply chains with a view to confirming that such behaviour is not taking place. Key suppliers are being contacted and requested to confirm that they are compliant with the act.
