Our stance on Transparency

Transparency

Transparency should underpin everything and is essential if the trust and support of patients and the public is to be maintained and developed.  Transparency means operating in such a way that it is easy for others to see what actions are performed. In a nutshell – Say what you do, do what you say.

Our guiding principles for transparency:

  • Accessible – easy access to information
  • Understandable – the right language for the audience
  • Relevant – addresses audience concerns
  • Useable – in a form that meets the audience needs
  • Assessable – is checkable/provides sufficient detail
  • Being as pro-active with ‘bad news’ as with ‘good news’
  • Being timely with communication
