New ‘External Interests’ Policy

The Register of Interests and the Conflict of Interest Policies have been revised and amalgamated into one new policy, entitled the ‘External Interests Policy’.  In addition a summary of the aforementioned policy has also been introduced.  The expectation is that when staff complete their annual declaration of interests this year, they will be directed to the policy summary as the focal point of reference, with the policy itself only being referred to where the summary does not answer the query or further information is required.  We hope that this approach will aid staff, and make the annual return exercise as easy a process as possible.

The new External Interests Policy is available to view at: and the policy summary is available from:
