The nature of our supply chains is as follows: We work with a number of key suppliers, who provide us with goods, such as equipment for our premises, inventory for dispensing and services, such as outsourced business processes, IT software and marketing services.

Policies

We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner.
These include the following:

  • Supplier code of conduct – Our Supplier Code of Conduct is a demonstration of our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains
  • Whistleblowing policy – We operate a Whistleblowing Policy, which is aimed at our employees but also covers our suppliers and which essentially encourages the reporting of any wrongdoing which extends to human rights violations like modern slavery. All reports are fully investigated and appropriate remedial actions taken. Metrics relating to whistleblowing activity are internally reviewed and referenced in quality meetings
  • Procurement policy – Our procurement procedures seek to prevent modern slavery by ensuring and checking that suppliers with a sales turnover over £36m are compliant with the Modern Slavery Act
  • Safeguarding policy -This policy highlights the potential risks of modern slavery and human trafficking, including how to identify signs of exploitation and how to report concerns
We make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies and adhere to the same standards.
Due Diligence

As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, we have adopted the following due diligence procedures:

  • Internal supplier audits

Our due diligence procedures aim to:

  • Identify and action potential risks in our business and supply chains
  • Monitor potential risks in our business and supply chains
  • Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains
  • Provide protection for whistleblowers
Risk and compliance

The Company has evaluated the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in its UK supply chain through:

  • Evaluating the slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier

We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because NowPatient operates in an environment where the majority of our supply chain is based in the UK.

We do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. Where there is evidence of failure to comply with our policies and procedures by any of our suppliers, we will seek to terminate our relationship with that supplier immediately.

Effectiveness

The Company uses Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure its effectiveness and ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in its business and supply chains. These KPIs are as follows:

  • Contact suppliers to enquire about their modern slavery practices every 24 months
