Policy on management of interest

On this page, you can find our policy of management of interests. The purpose of this document is to minimise the potential for conflicts of interest to arise and protects the charity and those who work for it from any perception, real or otherwise, that the external interests and affiliations of members of the Subcommittees of the Charitable Purposes Committee and supporting panels, groups and networks might interfere with their ability to work unbiasedly on behalf of the charity.


This policy relates to: 

  • All areas of business and to all members (permanent and guest) of the Disease, Treatment and Health Subcommittees of the Charitable Purposes Committee, as well as members of ad hoc panels, the college of experts and the patient insight network.
  • Research Study Group chairs and members of the study groups.
  • The management of conflicts of interests of external written peer reviewers (who are non-Subcommittee members).
