The purpose of the Disciplinary Policy is to encourage employees to achieve and maintain high standards of conduct and behaviour in accordance with the requirements of the Trust and to provide a policy for disciplining employees in a fair and consistent manner who fail to meet these standards.
Any matters relating to an employees conduct must be dealt with promptly, fairly and consistently and with due regard to Equality, Diversity and Human Rights. Every effort will be made to deal with matters in a manner that ensures confidentiality of the issues, however where there is an alleged criminal offence or identified risk to patient, or employee safety and there is a requirement to disclose information to the police, Employment Tribunal and/or Courts, professional or statutory bodies then in such circumstances confidentiality cannot be guaranteed.
