If a health professional works for a patient organisation (eg is a trustee/chairperson) and provides some work specifically in relation to their representation of the PO would the disclosure be against the PO? Should the monies be paid to the PO?
Clause 1.16 defines an individual who represents a patient organisation as a person who is mandated to represent and express the views of a patient organisation. Clause 27.5 states where companies contract with individuals representing patient organisations to provide services, such contracts should be made with the patient organisation and payment should be disclosed as a payment to the patient organisation. Such payments must be publicly disclosed annually as required by Clause 29.
