Conflict of Interest Form and Guidance Notes

This is the form we use for our records to show where our volunteers have other interests.

The Guidance is designed to help Healthwatch Board members, and other Healthwatch volunteers to understand how their interests and activities away from Healthwatch may have an effect on Healthwatch Tameside’s ability to be perceived as impartial and fair in the way it operates.

The purpose of declaring interests is not to bar anyone from an activity – it’s to identify the rare occasions where that interest might place someone in a difficult position.
