Professional Boundaries and Relationships at Work Policy

This Policy and its SOP provide information and guidance to managers and workers regarding acceptable professional and personal boundaries between individual workers and service users as well as relationships between individuals who work together.  The Trust recognises that workers need to establish a rapport with service users, their relatives and carers.  Workers are also responsible for establishing and maintaining appropriate boundaries between themselves and service users, their relatives and carers.  It is essential that all interactions between service users and workers are viewed and maintained in terms of a professional relationship.

The Trust values and relies on the professional integrity of objective relationships between workers.  To ensure that Trust business is conducted and is perceived to be conducted in a professional manner this policy is necessary to recognise and manage the risks of personal relationships between workers which overlap with professional ones.
