Declarations of Interest

Primary Care Networks (PCN) as providers of healthcare services, are committed to managing conflicts of interest in a way that demonstrates transparency, probity and accountability. 

All interests should be declared where there is a risk of perceived improper conduct.
Interests fall into the following categories:

  • Financial interests - Where an individual may get direct financial benefit from the consequences of a decision they are involved in making.
  • Non-financial professional interests - Where an individual may obtain a non-financial professional benefit from the consequences of a decision, they are involved in making, such as increasing their professional reputation or promoting their professional career.
  • Non-financial personal interests - Where an individual may benefit personally in ways which are not directly linked to their professional career and do not give rise to a direct financial benefit, because of decisions they are involved in making in their professional career.
  • Indirect interests - Where an individual has a close association with another individual who has a financial interest, a non-financial professional interest or a non-financial personal interest and could stand to benefit from a decision they are involved in making.

PCNs are therefore required to publish registers of interest relating to decision makers. When a declaration is made, the relevant register is updated as well as being reviewed at regular intervals.
