Modern Slavery Statement

Our statement on Slavery and Human Trafficking was agreed by our board on 11 July 2019 and has been signed by our former Chief Executive Officer.

Slavery and Human Trafficking statement

NHS Property Services fully supports the Government’s objectives to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking and recognises its role in both combatting it, and supporting victims. We are strongly committed to ensuring our supply chains and business activities are free from ethical and labour standards abuses.

We confirm the identities of all new employees and their right to work in the United Kingdom, and our policies additionally give a platform for our employees to raise concerns about poor working practices.

Our staff can raise concerns about inappropriate activity with us directly and confidentially. We have assigned the responsibilities of a Raising Concerns Guardian to the Company Secretary.  We consider any concerns for further investigation and offer support to individuals that have suffered fiscal or professional detriment as a result of whistleblowing.

Our procurement approach follows good practices such as the Crown Commercial Service standard, which includes a mandatory exclusion question regarding the Modern Slavery Act 2015. When procuring goods and services, we expect our suppliers to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and applies to NHS Property Services Limited.

The report was approved by the Board on 11 July 2019 and signed for and on behalf of the Board by:
