Code of Conduct published for IJB members

A Code of Conduct has been published for members of Aberdeen City Health & Social Care Partnership’s Integration Joint Board.

The Scottish public has a high expectation of those who serve on the boards of public bodies and of the way in which they should conduct themselves in undertaking their duties. Members must meet these expectations and ensure their conduct is above reproach.

The Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Act 2000 provides for Codes of Conduct for local authority councillors and members of relevant public bodies. The Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 (Consequential Amendments & Savings) Order 2015 determined that IJBs are “devolved public bodies” for the purposes of the 2000 Act.

The Code for IJBs has been developed using the Model Code and the statutory requirements of the 2000 Act, and requires members to be familiar with it and to comply with its provisions.
