Acceptance of Gifts Policy
This policy supersedes the previous ‘Acceptance of Gifts Policy Operational Directive OD 0354/11. This policy should be read in conjunction with the WA Health Managing Conflict of Interest Policy and Guidelines (OD 0264/10).
This policy sets out minimum mandatory requirements that must be followed if a gift is offered to ensure that the integrity and responsibilities of WA Health employees are not compromised or perceived to be compromised.
It is acknowledged that from time to time, employees may be offered gifts in the course of, or incidental to their employment. If a gift or benefit is to be accepted, it needs to be appropriately reported, approved and recorded.
