Footnotes & Declaration

Footnote (1)
The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, provides for many people who have been
convicted of certain criminal offences the opportunity to have no need to refer to these
convictions or the circumstances relating to them in the course of their daily lives. Certain
convictions can, therefore, be regarded as “spent” after the lapse of a period of years
under the terms of the Act. The National Health Service employment for which you are
applying is excluded in the provisions of the Act unless otherwise stated in the job
description. Unless stated, you are required not to withhold information about
convictions which for other purposes are “spent” under the provisions of the Act. This
means that all previous convictions must be declared. If you are offered employment, any
failure to disclose such convictions could result in dismissal or disciplinary action. Any
information given, however, will be completely confidential and will be considered only in
relation to the post for which this application form refers.

I declare that I have:     (a) No previous convictions
                           (b) Previous convictions – details of which I give below

               (This information will be verified by Disclosure Scotland)




Footnote (2)
In processing any personal information or data we hold about you we will comply with the
requirements of the Data Protection Act 1988 (the “Act”). In particular all reasonable steps
will be taken to ensure data is processed fairly, kept secure, protected against loss or
damage & only disclosed (unless required by law or legal process) on a need to know
basis. Under the Act you are entitled to ask us in writing to provide copies of certain data
we hold about you, upon payment of the appropriate fee.

Declaration
I declare that to the best of my knowledge the information contained in this form is
accurate and I consent to details being retained confidentially and used for specific and
lawful purposes as specified in the Data Protection Act 1998

                              MEDICAL & DENTAL STAFF

   STATEMENT OF POLICY REGARDING THE DISCLOSURE OF FITNESS TO
PRACTICE PROCEEDINGS BY A LICENCING/REGULATORY BODY AND RELATING
         TO CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS IN THE UK OR OVERSEAS

     _______________________________________________________

Registration with the General Medical Council or General Dental Council imposes on
doctors and dentists the duty to provide a good standard of medical care for, and to
behave appropriately towards patients. NHS Employers also have a duty to ensure that
patients receive a good standard of medical care and ensure as far as possible the safety
of patients. In accordance with NHS Circular PCS(DD) 2001/1, we therefore need to
establish if you have been found guilty of a criminal offence, been bound over or cautioned
or are currently the subject of proceedings which might lead to a conviction, an order
binding you over or a caution, in the UK or any other country.

Applicants for posts in the NHS are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
Application packs include a declaration for applicants to compete declaring any previous or
pending prosecutions or convictions, including those considered “spent” under this Act.
This will also include a declaration of any cautions or bind overs. We also need to
establish if you have been the subject of any fitness to practise proceedings in the past, or
if any fitness to practise proceedings are being contemplated, by a licensing or regulatory
body in the UK or another country and this is also reflected in the declaration.

Attached is a declaration which you must complete and return with your CV. Please note
that your application cannot be processed unless this form is received with your
CV. This information will be treated in confidence and will not debar you from appointment
unless the selection panel considers that it renders you unsuitable for appointment. In
reaching such a decision we will consider the nature of the conviction/action, how long ago
it took place and any other factors which may be relevant.

Failure to disclose a criminal offence, having been bound over or cautioned or that
you are currently the subject of criminal proceedings which might lead to a
conviction, an order binding you over or a caution, or fitness to practise
proceedings undertaken or being undertaken by an appropriate licensing or
regulatory body, may disqualify you from appointment, or result in summary
dismissal/disciplinary action and referral to the General Medical Council [General
Dental Council] for consideration if such a discrepancy came to light.

If you would like to discuss what effect any previous convictions, police investigations or
fitness to practise proceedings taken or being taken either in the UK or by an overseas
licensing or regulatory body might have on your application, you may telephone Anne
Holmes, Medical and Dental Team Lead, on 0141 278 2657 in confidence, for advice.

Name                                        I confirm I have read this policy

       hospital services through to regional specialist services. In addition it has close links with the
       Universities in Greater Glasgow and makes a significant contribution to teaching.

       The expanded Division now employs 44,000 staff across its sites, making it a significant
       employer.

      within the hospital.

       Stobhill is an acute general hospital serving a population of 240, 000. In May of this year the
       new Ambulatory Care Hospital opened providing all outpatient facilities, state of the art

Glasgow Royal Infirmary

Situated on Castle Street, Glasgow Royal Infirmary - or GRI - has 1077 beds and provides a
broad range of regional, supra-regional and national acute clinical services. The Division
recently completed a £60m capital development programme at the GRI site. This saw the
creation of major new developments which have significantly improved healthcare facilities
for the people of North Glasgow. Further to the closure of Canniesburn Hospital, the GRI
now has a new Plastic Surgery and Burns Unit, in addition to its new Emergency Receiving
Centre, based within the Jubilee Building.




The Western Infirmary

The Western Infirmary, which is on Dumbarton Road in Glasgow's West End, has 493 beds
and houses most of the acute emergency and receiving functions serving the west of the city -
accident and emergency, intensive care, orthopaedic trauma, emergency surgery, acute
medicine and acute stroke. In addition, the hospital also provides elective gastrointestinal,
breast surgery and cardiothoracic surgery. The Western's cardiothoracic department is one of
the country's busiest. Medical specialities include cardiology (coronary care, invasive and
non-invasive cardiac investigation, and angioplasty), general medicine, nephrology (including
        renal transplantation) and dermatology. As previously stated, the long-term goal is to transfer
        the clinical services from the Western to Gartnavel General to enhance services.



        Gartnavel General Hospital

        Situated on Great Western Road, in the west of the city, the 465-bed Gartnavel General
        operates in close partnership with the Western Infirmary. A broad range of medical and
        surgical sub-specialities are provided, supported by an 8-theatre in-patient operating
        department. As the base for many of West Glasgow's ambulatory care facilities, Gartnavel has
        a 4 theatre day surgery unit, endoscopy suite, imaging department (including CT and
        interventional radiology) and main concentration of out-patient accommodation. The breadth
        and complexity of services at Gartnavel has expanded considerably over the past few years,
        with the development of the Brownlee Centre for communicable diseases, the new Glasgow
        Homeopathic Hospital, and the new ophthalmology department. The Beatson Oncology
        Centre provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of cancer care for approximately half
        of Scotland's population and has linear accelerator radiotherapy units and associated treatment
        planning facilities.
