Internal Accountability

We fully support the modern Slavery Act 2015 and are committed to ensuring that acts of modern day slavery and human trafficking do not enter the business
and its supply chain. Our internal accountability standards and procedures help to confirm that employees and suppliers meet Healthcare21 standards through
mechanisms ranging from Quality/Supplier agreements to external ISO: 9001 audits and accreditation.

Our managing director sets the tone for our ethical culture. We believe this ‘’tone from the top’’ combined with our regular communications throughout the
year helps to create an ethical and legally compliant culture.

Through our Human resource policies, we seek to promote honest and ethical conduct, deter wrongdoing and achieve compliance with applicable law and
regulations. The principles laid out and embodied in our equal opportunities, victimization, ethics and staff retention policies push us to achieve this.

Healthcare 21’s compliance with Eucomed’s ‘Code of ethical Business Practice’ provides guidelines on Interactions with Healthcare professionals.
