Fairness and disciplinary policy

Following the tragic death of Amin Abdullah [staff member at Imperial College NHS FT] in 2015 and with oversight from the Trust’s Respect, Compassion and Wellbeing Programme Board, the Trust undertook a detailed review of the Disciplinary Policy [pdf] 850KB to ensure that it promoted a culture of fairness and was in accordance with our values. As a result of this commitment, significant improvements were made to our disciplinary procedures, all of which are underpinned by the revised Disciplinary Policy which was reviewed in partnership with staff-side colleagues to ensure it reflected our values and our commitment to making the Trust a great place to work, and met the recommendations as set out by NHSI. The Trust introduced a number of improvements in practice including:

  • A pre-disciplinary decision tree checklist (modelled on just culture methodology) to ensure all formal investigations are proportionate to the concerns identified and only when all alternatives have been fully considered
  • A service level agreement with defined roles, responsibilities including in relation to the health and wellbeing of the affected employee
  • Defined timeframes for the completion of investigations, with performance being regularly reviewed against this SLA. The average length of time taken to resolve a case has now been halved
  • Training for line managers leading on internal investigations
  • Support for staff going through a disciplinary process which includes access to the Employee Assistance Programme, pastoral support, regular updates and Occupational Health if required.  
  • Sharing anonymised disciplinary outcomes with staff

We remain committed to achieving the overriding objective of enabling a fair, respectful and compassionate culture, and protecting the safety and wellbeing of our staff. We are seeking to continuously improve our processes in response to feedback and learning from best practice.”
