pdf Managing Concerns About Medical Staff Policy (623 KB)

This is an agreement between Sussex Partnership Trust (the Trust) and the Medical Negotiating Committee (MNC) outlining the employers procedure for handling concerns about doctors conduct and capability. It implements the framework set out in Maintaining High Professional Standards in the Modern NHS, issued under the direction of the Secretary of State for Health on 11 February 2005. This agreement supersedes any previous disciplinary procedure.

This procedure may be amended to reflect any future national advice or guidance but only by agreement with the MNC. Where there is any conflict or lack of clarity the existing national agreed guidance will take precedence. The operation of the procedure in practice will be reviewed after 2 years from the date indicated at the front of the document.
