Statements and Declarations

As an NHS Foundation Trust, we are sometimes required by our regulators and commissioners to publish public statements and declarations on our performance and adherence to government policy.

You will find here our most recent declarations and responses to key issues.

Bribery Act 2010 and Anti-Bribery Strategy

The NHS takes bribery very seriously. It is a crime and Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust does not, and will not, pay bribes or offer improper inducements to anyone for any purpose. Nor do we accept bribes or improper inducements. This applies to everyone who works for us or with us, including third parties who carry out work on our behalf.

On 1 July 2011 the Bribery Act 2010 came into force, reforming the criminal law of bribery and corruption making it easier to taclke these offences proactively.

GMMH is commited to the prevention, deterrence and detection of bribery just as we are to combatting fraud in the NHS. As an organisation we have a zero-tolerance attitude towards bribery and we aim to maintain anti-bribery compliance as "business as usual", rather than a one of exercise.

Compliance with the NHS Provider Licence

NHS Foundation Trusts are required to self-certify on an annual basis whether or not they have complied with the conditions of the NHS Provider Licence and related obligations, have the required resources available if providing Commissioner Requested Services and have complied with required governance arrangements.

In May 2019, the Board of Directors reviewed the conditions of the NHS Provider Licence and was able to confirm compliance. The Board of Directors’ review took into account a number of sources of assurance including the Trust’s system of internal control and feedback from the Trust’s internal auditors.

A signed self-certification of compliance with the NHS Provider Licence and related obligations is available here.
