Declarations of Interest
The Scottish Medicines Consortium has a policy of Declarations of interest (DoI) in line with the Code of Practice for members of the Medicines Commission and Section 4 Committees and Sub Committees. A standard explanation of DoI and frequently asked questions is also attached.
All elected members of the Scottish Medicines Consortium, the New Drugs Committee and SMC clinical experts are required to complete a DoI prior to assuming Consortium-related duties. This data is retained centrally by the SMC secretariat. During the course of SMC or NDC meetings members are requested to declare interests in relation to products for review. Members who hold personal interests are excluded from the decision-making process.
