This policy supports the Trust s values by ensuring the safest and highest quality healthcare is provided for patients in our care and by facilitating continuous improvement in the most cost-effective way in the provision of wound care (products). 2 Scope This policy applies to all wound care company representatives or those supplying products to prevent wounds e.g. pressure redistributing equipment who are visiting the Trust and any Trust staff members with whom they interact. 3 Aims This policy describes the code to which the representatives must work, the role of the Tissue Viability Team and the role of the Wound Formulary Review Group. 4 Definitions Wound Care is defined in this policy as products used in the management of wounds, wound diagnostics or in the prevention of pressure ulcers 5 The Code This Code of Practice is based on the Code of Practice for Pharmaceutical Representatives but is simplified to reflect the pertinent areas which are applicable to wound care. Promotional activities for products must be consistent with policies agreed by the Trust Drug and Therapeutic Panel as set out in the North of Tyne Formulary. Page 1 of 4

2 5.1 Company representatives should conduct themselves in a professional manner, appropriate to the provision of information on and selling of wound care products in accordance to their own regulatory code All company representatives visiting the Trust for the first time must report to either the Tissue Viability Team or Supplies Department via an arranged appointment. A copy of this Code of Practice will be supplied and any further relevant information about relevant Trust policies and procedures. 5.3 Company representatives should wear an identification badge which should display the individual s name, photographic identification and the company s name/logo. In secondary care- representatives will need to collect a Visitor badge from the main receptions prior to visiting any wards. In primary care, the company identification badge will suffice. 5.4 Company representatives must not enter wards and other Trust premises without prior invitation of a senior member of medical/nursing staff. Any proposed activities must be discussed with the Tissue Viability Team first. 5.5 Company representatives entering clinical areas must comply with Trust policies and procedures, particularly those relating to infection control and patient confidentiality 5.6 Company representatives must send regular updates of activities via to the Tissue Viability Team in order to keep a record of such within the Organisation. 5.7 Product samples must not be left with medical, nursing or allied professionals unless their use has been specifically approved by the Tissue Viability Team or Wound Formulary Review Group. 5.8 All activities including the provision of hospitality and gifts must conform to the professional code of conduct as outlined at Gifts or donations must not be offered or given as an inducement to prescribe, supply, administer or buy a product. 5.9 The Wound Formulary Review Group may request an evaluation of a new product. In this case, products must be purchased by each Directorate. Tissue Viability will organise a supply via a) Pharmacy if they contain active ingredients b) Supply Chain if they are not Pharmacy products In community, these products will be prescribed via FP10 by the Tissue Viability Team.
