As of the 1st of March 2020, the new NHS Scotland Workforce Conduct Policy will replace the current NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Policy.
New Conduct Cases
For all new conduct cases please use the above link to access the policy and extensive supporting documentation including the Workforce Investigation Process.
To obtain HR Support for the Workforce Investigation Process, please complete the Request to Initiate HR Support.
The policy provides a process to ensure that concerns about standards of conduct, inappropriate behaviour or wilful misconduct are managed in a fair, consistent and timely manner. This applies to employees and workers, including back, agency and sessional workers. It does not apply when reviewing the professional conduct or competence of medical or dental staff.
Existing Disciplinary Cases
Individuals currently within a process under NHS GGC Disciplinary Policy should continue with the current process.
If further assistance is required please do not hesitate to contact the HR Support and Advice unit if you wish to discuss this further

This policy sets out the procedures which should be used to address conduct matters. It is designed to clarify the rights and responsibilities of management, staff and Trade Unions/Professional Organisations in respect of employees who become liable to disciplinary action resulting from failure to meet the required standard of performance or conduct relating to their work or profession.
It is the intention of the policy to ensure that the principles of fairness, equality, reasonableness and justice are applied.
The policy covers all staff directly employed or seconded by the Board and includes all Medical and Dental staff in cases of personal misconduct.
