The National Inquiry into Ethical Decision Making in the NHS – Centre for Innovation in Health Management – 2012

“CIHM’s third National Inquiry, this time into Organisational Decision Making in the NHS has highlighted the need for more resources on ethical decision-making at a senior management level.

The major output from this research is a checklist for ethical decision-making, which we recommend implementing in real situations. It is only through practice that NHS staff can improve their ethical decision-making.

In our report we have set out some simple, practical advice that can help NHS organisations to make better, more effective ethical decisions. We have also have looked in detail at specific ethical issues – fairness, justice, equity, equality, openness, honesty, transparency – which will play a role in decisions made by all trusts at some point.

The report is particularly relevant for NHS senior managers and Board members although all those within the NHS who are making strategic and organisational decisions may find it of value. The check list in the report can be used to influence decision-making at all levels of the organisation. Wherever there is an element of ethical complexity to the decision in question, we think these considerations are important, and the checklist is intendeds to be flexible enough to be used in a number of different contexts.”
