Conflict of Interests Policy
All partners at Trinity Medical Centre have Partnership Shares in Novus Health.
The practice would like to reassure patients that although this is a financial interest, this has no bearing on what services are available to our patients. Novus Health must go through a strict tendering process by either the CCG or the wider federation before any services in the area can be approved. Only following this, will their services be available to patients.
If a GP feels the need to refer patients to an external provider for any reason, the GP will make a referral to the CCG’s Referral Management Team. Each patient will then be given a choice of locations and providers by this Referral Management Team who manage all referrals. GP’s with financial interest in Novus Health will receive no direct financial gain based on the amount of referrals made to Novus Health.
